Description

Stokes has made a mistake, as he didn't know the paper was also reported on by William Grylls Adams. Informs the referee that the author seems 'indifferent' to his suggestions. The author also refuses to shorten the paper in any way. Stokes believes 'it is a pity that the powerful appetite he has for work is not better directed'.
