Description'In reply to your letter of yesterday, the summary of your paper on Some phenomena of regeneration in sycon, with a note on the structure of the collar-cells, is too long to serve as a meeting abstract; and as we do not like to exceed the limit of 300 words fixed by the regulations, I should be obliged if you could see your way to cut down the summary, for meeting purposes, to about one half its present length.
I send you the Ms [manuscript] on loan and shall be glad if you will return it here, together with the meeting abstract, not later than Monday next.
A notice inform you that you paper is put down for reading on May 4 was sent to you yesterday at the University Museum.'
