TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Henry Power, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison encloses a paper by Dr George Reid and asks whether Power will report to the Physiology Sectional Committee on its suitability for acceptance and publication. As it appears to be a very specialised paper, they particularly seek his view on whether it represents a significant enough advance for acceptance by the Royal Society; whether they should only publish it as an abstract in Proceedings of the Royal Society; and whether, if he recommends publication of the full paper, the detailed analyses at the end could be omitted.
