TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Albert Charles Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 October 1907
DescriptionAt the direction of Sir Archibald Geikie, Harrison sends Seward the two referees reports, by Robert Kidston and Mr Strahan, with letters from Kidston and Dr D H Scott, on the paper by Miss Marie C Stopes and David Meredith Seares Watson, 'On the Present Distribution and Origin of the Calcareous Concretions in Coal Seams, Known as "Coal Balls"', communicated by Jethro Justinian Harris Teall, Fellow of the Royal Society.

He asks that Seward minute his opinion on the procedure to be adopted regarding this paper. He will forward the manuscript if Seward wishes to see it again.

A postscript notes that Stopes is away from England, possibly in Japan, and he wonders if Watson is competant to undertake revision of the paper.
