Date3 February 1905
DescriptionMilne's paper on a new Rhabdosphere has been recommended by the Zoology Sectional Committee for publication in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' but the referee and committee thought the paper on a method of using the tow-net was better adapted for a letter to 'Nature'. Returns Murray's manuscript, notes the method seemed remarkably simple and ingenious.
