TitleReferee's report by Francis Galton, on a paper 'The function of sex' by G Archdall Reid
DateOctober 1905
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

The paper should not be published in the Proceedings, nor read before the Society. He grieves to report against any paper, and if his co-referee thinks differently he will not press his objection. The memoir starts with a hypothesis, it is deduction throughout and leads so far as he can see, to no important conclusion.

[Not published].
