TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date8 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison encloses a letter from Dr Head about Dr C E Beevor's paper 'The distribution of the different arteries supplying the human brain', and asks for Larmor's view as it relates to a question of policy. Beevor's long paper, 70 pages with nine plates, is submitted for publication in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society under Standing Order 43, and there is a short four page abstract which is yet to be printed and the paper has not yet been read. Publication of the paper in "Brain" may interfer with the publication of the abstract in Proceedings of the Royal Society, but should not affect the full paper appearing in Philosophical Transactions.
