TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Albert Charles Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Sectional Committee
Date19 March 1907
DescriptionDr Dukinfield Henry Scott's report on Fritsch's paper 'On the Anatomy of the Julianiaceae' has been received, and it is not favourable for publication in 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Scott says the paper has great merit and value as recording careful and accurate investigation, but he thinks it is too special a character for that publication. He recommends that the general conclusions as to the affinities of the new natural order should be published in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' as a fuller abstract. The reports on Fritsch's paper and Groom's paper have been received, and will now be available for the Committee on Thursday.
