DescriptionSectional committee: Physiology

He has struggled to understand a basic piece of arithmetic in the paper and considers himself a 'broken reed' and is unable to fully judge the paper. The work in the paper is 'good and careful' and it should be published. The paper should be referred to someone who won't find difficulty in following it.
