TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir David Gill, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 June 1900
DescriptionDr Edington's paper on 'South African Horse Sickness' has received careful consideration at the hands of the Sectional Committee to whom it was referred and Harrison asks Gill to inform Edington that the Committee do not think the paper should be published in its present form. Gill might suggest to Edington to withdraw the paper and substitute it for a short communication for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', embodying the main results obtained. The manuscript can be returned as soon as Edington intimates his desire to withdraw it.
