TitleLetter from Peter Martin Duncan, to George Gabriel Stokes, regarding a paper 'On Palaeocoryne, a genus of tubularine hydrozoa from the Carboniferous formation' by Peter Martin Duncan and H M Jenkins
Date6 September 1869
DescriptionHas taken the suggestions of the referee's report on board and appended a statement about the calcareous nature of the fossils. Does not agree with the referee's opinion that the conclusion is too confident. Wishes to see the artist 'because he will have to draw the fossils themselves'.

Subject: Geology, Palaeontology
