TitleLetter from Sir David Prain, FRS, Royal Botanic Garden, Shibpur, Calcutta, [Kolkata] to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date11 July 1903
DescriptionNotes that he hears from time to time what Mackenzie Davidson is doing, however, rarely comes across any of his papers, the last of which he read was on the stereoscopic examination of skiagraphs of foreign bodies in the eye. Writes of his views on 'reprints' and the notion that just because a paper is of a different quality does not relieve one of the duty of citing it.
