TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Hugh Longbourne Callendar, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Physics and Chemistry Committee
Date18 December 1906
DescriptionPart I of a paper by Messrs Mann and Ince 'Contributions to our Knowledge of the Poison Plants of Western Australia - Part I. Cygnine' was communicated with a view to publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', and was referred to Professors William Palmer Wynne and Wyndham Rowland Dunstan to report. It has been cut down by the authors considerably, and has now been sent in with Part II for publication in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. Wynne is busy until January, and Harrison asks if the paper should wait until then or be sent to another Fellow.
