Description'Dear Sir,
With reference to your letter of December 14th I now return you the Manuscript of your full paper on Endemic Goitre, together with the photographs. The short abstract which accompanied the full paper is retained here for publication in the Proceedings [of the Royal Society]. As the full paper is withdrawn by you and is therefore, under the Standing Orders of Council, to be regarded as not having been communicated to the Royal Society at all, you are under no obligation to await the publication of the abstract in the Proceedings before sending the full paper to a Medical Journal.'
