TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Botany Sectional Committee
Date19 December 1907
Description[Described as 'delayed in despatch till Dec. 23rd]

Harrison encloses Colonel David Prain's comments on the revised version of Professor Percy Groom's paper on 'Longitudinal symmetry in Phanerogamia', made in accordance with the Chairman's minute. He asks for advice on the course of action to be adopted.

He also encloses Professor Joseph Larmor's minute with reference to the suggested publication of the physical portions of Professor Reginald Buller's paper on 'The production, liberation and distribution of the spores of Hymenomycetes' in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. Harrison asks that Seward minute his opinion on the action to be taken, noting that as it has yet to be read, it may still be withdrawn.

Professor Oliver's report on the paper by Arber and Thomas has not yet been received.
