TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date30 April 1906
DescriptionHarrison asks that Larmor mark, on the enclosed list of papers, the probable papers for Thursday 10 May and return it to him. He also shares that Professor Henry Edward Armstrong has reported favourably on 'Cyanogenesis in Plants, Parts IV and V' by [Wyndham Rowland] Dunstan, Henry and Auld for publication in Proceedings of the Royal Society. The only exception one could take, Armstrong suggests, is to the high level of detail, but he remarks that though a briefer statement would be enough for the expert chemist, this more detailed study appeals to vegetable physiologists.
