TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Harry Marshall Ward, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Committee
Date11 January 1905
DescriptionThe reports of the two referees, [Harold William Taylor] Wager and [John Bretland] Farmer, on Professor Marcus Hartog's paper, 'On the Dual Force of the Dividing Cell. Part I. The Achromatic Spindle Figure, elucidated by Magnetic Chains of Force', have been received and both botanists find it difficult comment on the paper as it enters largely into the domain of Physics. Professor Joseph Larmor thinks the paper should be sent to Mr Horace Tabberer Brown. Asks if he concurs.
