Letter from Sir William Thomson to Dr John Ambrose Fleming

Made:
1890-07-07
maker:
Thomson, William (Baron Kelvin)

Thomson has 'looked into the matter of contact electricity and the multicellulars' and gives details of the readings. Major Cardew showed him his multicellular [voltmeter] and got different readings. Thomson is going to investigate this difference in readings between older and newer instruments but thinks it may be due to 'the varnishing of the aluminium needle'.
