|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||1 October 1896|
|Description||With reference to the paper 'Mathematical Contributions to the Theory of Evolution: on Telegony in Man, &c.', by Pearson and Miss A Lee, which is now under consideration, it has been suggested that Pearson should consider the propriety of including among the probable causes of the greater variability of the younger children that of the greater variability of their nurture. |
Asks if Pearson is inclined to act upon the suggestion before further steps are taken towards the publication of the paper.
