TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Franklin Kidd, St John's College, Cambridge
Date8 May 1914
DescriptionThe corrected proof of his second 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' paper on germination of seeds has been received. Observes that he has struck out the illustrative figure which accompanied the paper as sent in. There does not seem to be any explanation of this, and it is a shame it was not done before as the block has just been prepared and must now be rejected.
