TitleCopy letter from Sir William Bate Hardy, FRS, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor B [Benjamin] Moore, FRS
Date4 February 1920
DescriptionIs sending Rawson's paper to Professor B [Benjamin] Moore, FRS, saying the whole subject of inheritance is so controversial that he thought it best for it to be sent in the first instance to a botanist friend 'who has no undue sympathy with mendalism, and at the same time, has wide knowledge of plant culture and plant physiology.' He describes the paper as 'drastic,' and asks Professor Moore to consider whether it is wise to put the paper forward to the Botany Committee.
