TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent to, to Vernon Herbert Blackman, [Fellow fo the Royal Society]
Date[8 July 1898]
DescriptionThe author has only slight modifications to suggest to Blackman's paper. He does not think full justice is done to Hofmeister in the introduction and Hofmeister's discovery of the cells formed in the pollen tube of Gymnosperms, should certainly be noticed. Does not think it seems fitting to describe the mistakes of so great a master as 'gross errors'. The recent discovery of fertilization by spermatids[?] in certain Gymnosperms is entirely ignored. Thinks this omission should be rectified.
