TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Albert Charles Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Committee
Date11 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison encloses for Seward's information a copy of Harold Wager's report on Professor A H Reginald Buller's Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society paper, 'On the production, liberation, and distribution of the spores of Hymenomycetes', as communicated by Professor John Bretland Farmer.

The nomination of a second referee was deferred pending receipt of Wager's opinion on whether certain parts of the paper should be referred to a physicist. Harrison asks that Seward minute his opinion on the second referee, or let him know if it should wait for the committee meeting.
