TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison has found that Dr Archdall Reid's paper was returned to Lankester on 27 October, with a covering letter from Archibald Geikie. The letter explained that as both referees were not in favour of publication, it was being returned to him as communicator, to allow Reid to modify it as he saw fit and present it as a new paper. He trusts this information will enable Lankester to trace the manuscript.
