Letter from D Clayton, to Alred Charles Glyn Egerton, regarding a paper 'The heat of adsorption of long-chain compounds and their effect on boundary lubrication' by Joseph John Frewing

Reference number: RR/68/292

Date: 24 July 1943

Description

Sectional Committee: Not stated [Engineering and Physics]

Finds the author's comments 'corageous', but still thinks he does not quite appreciate the points, or they 'are too fundamental to accept without some serious alteration of the paper'. Now each has expressed his view, the paper should be published.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London']
