TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr J F Gemmill
Date5 February 1912
Description'I have the pleasure to inform you that, acting under the Standing Orders of Council relating to publications, the Secretaries have marked your paper on "This locomotoer function of the lantern in echinus, with remarks on other allied lantern activities" as suitable for publication in the "Proceedings [of the Royal Society]", and have authorised me to set it up in type accordingly.
With regard to the illustrations to the paper it have been suggested that Figs. 1, 7, and 8 should form a plate. If you have no objection, this plan will be followed, and perhaps the references to the figures could be altered in the proof, which will be submitted to you as son as it is received from the printers.'
