THE late Dr. R. Mullineux Walmsley was interesting himself in my work on the above subject, and for this purpose I lent to him my own special set of my five papers on the subject which were read before the Society of Engineers in the five years 1919–1923 inclusive. Unfortunately, this set has not been found among Dr. Walmsley's papers either at the University of London, the Northampton Polytechnic, or at his private house, and, knowing how careful he was, this points to his having probably lent the papers to somebody in connexion with the matter with which he was dealing. As the sets of these five papers are now so scarce, and especially as the set in question was my own private set, if this letter meet the eye of the person to whom the set was lent, I shall be greatly obliged if he will be so good as to return it to me.
