TitleLetter from Henry Hallett Dale, to Archibald Vivian Hill, regarding a paper 'The autonomic nervous system of the earthworm' by Flight-lieutenant Norman Millott
Date28 February 1940
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Hopes the length of the paper will not work against its publication in the Proceedings. Suggests numerous revisions to style in pencil on the manuscript. Suggests John Zachary Young as another referee, although young and not a Fellow. Also suggests Carl Frederick Abel Pantin as referee, although he was a supervisor for the work at Cambridge, but may be best placed to suggest further work. Thomas Renton Elliott would find the work interesting and give valuable opinions on it.
