TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Ernest Henry Starling, Fellow of the Royal Society, 8 Park Square West, Regent's Park, N.W.
Date9 June 1904
DescriptionHarrison reports that the best advice available is against publication of Santer's paper on the grounds of a lack of proof that he was dealing with an enzyme or measuring its rate of reaction by the decomposition of H2O. They can refer it to a second referee if Starling wishes, but he suggests that withdrawal of the paper would save time and allow the manuscript to be returned.
