TitleCopy letter from Henry Hallett Dale, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir John Flett, FRS
Date4 December 1925
DescriptionAsks for Sir John Flett to act as a referee to a 'very massive document which has been communicated to the Royal Society'. Does not want to prejudice Flett's view, but informs him that the cost of publishing the paper (around £1500) would only be considered if it was 'of very exceptional merit'.
