TitleReferee's report by George Newport, on a paper 'The reproduction of the Ascaris mystax' by Henry Nelson
Date11 February 1852
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Thinks the paper should be reviewed by a second physiologist, as the reviewer has had some difficulty in coming to any firm conclusions, as the author differs from most experience ad conclusions regarding the penetrative actions of the Spermatozoa. Refers to work of William Dobinson Halliburton. Reviewer regrets that his doubts about the 'correctness' of the author's conclusions prevents him from recommending the paper for publication, despite the 'interesting observations' and the illustrations.
