Description

Sectional Committee: Not stated [Physics]

The paper communicated in 1939 has now been passed for open publication. The lettering on the maps and figures would require many hours' work to complete, and that as many of the engravers called up have not yet been released, there will be a delay of several months before the figures can be engraved. Asks if any of the lettering could be done by the staff at the Royal Observatory, so as not to delay publication if possible.
