TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Magnus Gustaf Retzius, Foreign Member of the Royal Society
Date4 August 1908
DescriptionAcknowledges his letter of 28 July with the corrected proofs of his Croonian Lecture, which will go forward now for publication in an early number of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. Agrees that the comma between the character and the name in such cases as he quotes is superfluous, and he will take it out throughout the proof. The printers are much too fond of commas, and authors are not always as careful as Retzius has been to correct punctuation.
