TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Albert Charles Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Sectional Committee
Date25 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison informs Seward that Mr Blackman, referee for 'On the Supposed Extracellular Photosynthesis of Carbon Dioxide by Chlorophyll' by Alfred James Ewart, has reported in favour of publication in Proceedings of the Royal Society as it stands. He is doubtful of some of the criticisms made of Usher and Priestly's papers, but notes that most of the paper seeems 'significant and important'.

In view of this favourable report, he asks that Seward state whether he is willing to authorise publication under Standing Order 33.
