Sectional Committee: Engineering

Encloses final corrected proof. In discussion with Richard Whiddington, agrees that some of the paper contains information that should not be published during the war. Some of the method and notation of the paper has already been published in America, which does not contain much definite useful information. Suggests circulation the paper as a confidential document, with publication postponed until after the war.

Enclosed three copies of a paper reprinted from the Proceedings of the Fifth International Congress of Applied Mathematics, 1938.
