TitleLetter from George Robert Milne Murray and Vernon Herbert Blackman, to Michael Foster, regarding a paper 'A study of the phyto-plankton of the Atlantic' by George Robert Milne Murray and Vernon Herbert Blackman
Date20 June 1898
DescriptionFinds it hard to give an answer when a decision hasn't been made regarding publication. Gives two suggestions - offer the whole paper to the Royal Society of Edinburgh; break the paper down into three. Refers to an additional author, Frances G Whitting, who could not be persuaded to join the authorship of the whole paper, but would consent to being named author on the third section. 'This second arrangement has the advantage of doing justice to her'.

Subject: Botany, Zoology

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London']
