TitleCopy letter from William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir John Russell, FRS
Date13 February 1925
DescriptionJustifies publishing the paper ['The relation between the development, structure and functioning of the Nodules on Vicia Faba as influenced by the presence or absence of boron in the nutrient medium'], by Dr [Winifred Elsie] Brenchley and Mr [Henry Gerard] Thornton, in the Proceedings rather than in the Transactions; the Proceedings reach a far wider audience, and it is important that a paper of this kind is widely publicised 'in the interest of the authors and of the scientific public'.
