TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Dukinfield Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Sectional Committee
Date4 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison explains that Professor Armstrong reported in favour of publication for the papers by Professor Dunstan, Dr T R Henry and S J M Auld 'On Cyanogensis in Plants' parts four and five, with his only critique being directed at the level of detail; however, Armstrong noted that while a briefer statement would satisfy a chemist it would appeal less to physiologists. He asks if Scott believes they should proceed with printing the papers under Standing Order 33.

Harrison also encloses a postcard with details of a paper by Francis L Usher and J H Priestly, being a continuation of a paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, B Series, volume 77, page 369. Professor Joseph Larmor, having read the paper, passed it for printing in Proceedings. Harrison asks if Scott agrees.
