TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor D [David] Ferrier FRS
Date7 June 1910
Description'A paper by Prof Georges Dreyer MD and William Ray B.Sc on the blood volumes of mammals, etc...'

Professor Halliburton, as 3rd referee has reported favourably upon this paper, and thinks it should be published in the Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society].
He writes - "I can suggest no modifications; the paper is an excellent one, and appears to settle quite conclusively various disputed points, and so is a distinct accession to Natural Knowledge. The illustrations should all be published."
In view of this report, Prof Bradford suggests that the paper should now go forward under Standing order 43, and I should be glad to know whether you agree.'
