TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor John Bretland Farmer, Chairman of the Botany Committee and FRS
Date18 January 1916
DescriptionRefers to a paper by W. [William] L. [Lawrence] Balls on 'Analyses of agricultural yield. Part III'. Explains that both referee reports are in favour of this paper's publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. However, as it exceeds 24 pages it is necessary to obtain the recommendation of the [Botany] Committee. Suggest that this be obtained at the next Committee meeting.
