TitleReferee's report by John Gray McKendrick, on a paper 'Observations on the visual purple of the retina' by F W Edridge Green
Date19 November 1901
DescriptionSectional committee: [Physiology]

Not recommended for publication in the Proceedings in its present condition as it is too fragmentary. The author should indicate with greater precision what happened in the experiments, for instance details of the experimental conditions should be provided such as how long after death the observations were made. He is not disputing the statements of the author but thinks the evidence is not so strong as it should be in such a case and, in his opinion, the author does not do himself justice. The paper should therefore be amended.

[Not published].
