TitleReferee's report by Walter Holbrook Gaskell, on a paper 'Development of the sympathetic nervous system mammals' by A M Paterson
Date6 May 1890
DescriptionDeclines to comment regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Does not have enough experience with the methods of observation to comment. 'I feel that it is rather hard on the author of an ambryological paper that it should be referred to me, seeing that my work and my beliefs are largely opposed to the orthodox ambryology of the day as far as vertebrates are concerned'.
