Discussion on Mr. H.G. Lloyd's Paper

Sir,-After reading Mr. Lloyd’s valuable paper and noting the extreme care with which the tests are conducted, it is a little disappointing to find that in common with other investigators he gets some freak results such as 10 of series 3, Table No. 6. The relatively high values of 11 and 12 of Series No. 4, Table No. 5, seem to go with relatively high weights of the blocks, but the low value of 7 Series 1 Table No. 5 also goes with a relatively high weight, so that it does not appear that an explanation can be sought in the density of the blocks.
