TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr R [Robert] Kidston FRS
Date19 December 1911
Description'With reference to your report on Mr E A N Arber's paper on fossil flora; I have referred your request to be put in direct communication with the author to higher authority, and am instructed by the Chairman of the Committee concerned to say that there does not seem sufficient reason for departing from the strict practice of the Society with regard to the confidential position of a referee.
I am to ask that you will be good enough to furnish your notes on the author's slips and errors on nomenclature; they can be transcribed here and transmitted to the author.'
