TitleCopy letter from [Robert William Frederick Harrison], to Professor Harry Marshall Ward, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 December 1905
DescriptionHarrison reports that both Professor Francis Wall Oliver and Albert Charles Seward have reported favourably on Robert Kidston's paper 'On the microsporangia of the Pteridospermeae, with remarks on their Relationship to existing groups'. Oliver has sent an additional note in which Kidston's rejection of the attribution to Lyginodendron by Miss Benson of Telangium Scotti is highlighted, as well as his reliance upon fossils for the sort of evidence for which petrification is usually required, and so Harrison asks if they should refer it to a third referee, Dr D H Scott, as Oliver suggests.
