TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Professor William Abbott Herdman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 September 1902
DescriptionIn Harrison's absence from England, Sir Foster has directed White to reply to Herdman's letter referring to the paper by Messrs Keeble and Gamble. As Foster will be in Venice all this month, he suggests time might be saved if the paper went to a second physiological referee, and for this purpose he suggests Professor C S Sherrington. The paper could then be considered at a meeting of the Committee after the vacation. Queries if Herdman agrees to Professor Sherrington as a referee, if so the paper will be sent on to him.
