TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Halliburton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 February 1899
DescriptionSends Dr MacMunn's paper which has been returned by Professor Schafer who declines to report upon it as the subject is too far removed from his line of work. Schafer thinks it would be best to send it to a comparative anatomist for the histological part. Asks for suggestions for a second referee. Dr Foster suggests Professor Sherrington who has already seen the paper and knows all about it.
