This now makes two papers awaiting the decision of the Zoology Committee, the other being Professor [Karl] Pearson's 'Mathematical Contributions to the Theory of Evolution. LX. Homotyposis in the Vegetable Kingdom'. The referees are not in agreement regarding the publication of this paper as Herdman will see from the enclosed reports [not enclosed].
