TitleSecond letter from Victor Alexander Haden Horsley, to John William Strutt, 3rd Baron Rayleigh, regarding a paper 'On the effects produced on the circulation and respiration by gun-shot injuries of the cerebral hemispheres' by S P Kramer and Victor Alexander Haden Horsley
Date30 March 1895
DescriptionConsiders the delay to the publication of the paper to be unreasonable. Did not agree with the omission of the blood pressure discussion, even if this would have sped up publication. Refers to work by Spencer. Suggests the Council have a 'discussion of the general system at present employed for the reference of papers, with the view of increasing the responsibility of the Referees and of preventing the obvious injuries of unnecessary and preventable delays'.
