TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Sydney John Hickson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 November 1908
DescriptionProfessor Haddon's report on a 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper by W Heape on 'The
Proportion of the Sexes produced by Whites and Coloured Peoples in Cuba'. Haddon thinks it should be published in full without modification, and thinks it is a 'valuable piece of work'.

Professor Karl Pearson has declined to act as the second referee.

Asks Hickson to say whether he authorises that an abstract of the paper should appear in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', and also whether he accepts the paper for reading.
