TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Albert Charles Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Sectional Committee
Date29 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that they have received back the revised paper by Professor Percy Groom, 'Longitudinal Symmetry in Phanerogamia', which was approved by the Botany Committee for publication in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society subject to amendment and abbreviation in line with the referees' recommendations, and the replotting and rearrangement of curves by the author to make them suitable for direct reproduction.

The paper is now estimated to occupy 70 pages of Transactions with seven figures and 26 curves, costing £66, as opposed to the estimate for the original paper of 170 pages and 70 figures and curves at a cost of £194. Seward is asked if publication of the revised paper may be proceeded with.
