TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Sidney Howard Cox Martin, Chairman of the Physiology Sectional Committee
Date19 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison encloses copies of the three referees' reports for Dr Wynfrid Lawrence Henry Duckworth's paper 'On a critical account of some anomalous conditions of the cerebrum in the human foetus', communicated by Professor Alexander Macalister, and asks that Martin minute his instructions regarding actions to be taken.

A manuscript annotation records that they have also received two reports, unfavourable to publication, on H M Vernon's paper on Protoplasma. He notes it is unusual, and not anticipated by the Standing Orders, to decide on publication in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society purely on this basis.
Physical descriptionTypescript and manuscript. The manuscript is faded to illegibility in parts.
