TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor J [John] Rose Bradford, Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society
Date27 January 1908
DescriptionPaper by J C G Ledingham: 'On the Influence of Temperature on Phagocytosis'.
Ledingham's paper was judged by Professor Bradford as unnecessarily detailed and had been sent back to the author for consideration. Ledingham has now returned his paper but Sir Archibald Geikie is still of the opinion that it is too long. Geikie consults that "the question is not, as the author's letter puts it, whether we have to consider the interests of the other workers in this field, but whether we regard the paper as suitable for the Proceedings [of the Royal Society]"
