TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Charles Sissmore Tomes, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 February 1900
DescriptionStates the title of Tomes' paper 'Upon the Development of the Enamel in Certain Osseous Fish'. The Committee think the figures sent in might be improved in quality and reduced in number. Hopes Tomes will be prepared to meet the Committee's views. If pencil drawings were substituted for the photographs sent in, half the number of illustrations at present attached to the paper could be so arranged as to delineate all that is necessary.
