Letter from William Ellis, to George Gabriel Stokes, regarding a paper 'On the relation between the diurnal range of magnetic declination and horizontal force, as observed at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, during the years 1841 to 1877, and the period of solar spot frequency' by William Ellis

Reference number: RR/6/316

Date: 28 February 1880

Description

Is happy to hear his paper has been recommended for publication in the Philosophical Transactions. Has postponed responding to await further communication regarding the insertion of reference to prior researches. Is happy to make the references suggested, and hopes that the omission has not been misunderstood. It would be a great help if any titles could be communicated to him. Will rewrite the necessary paragraph and send a copy for approval.
