TitleLetter from Herbert Graham Cannon, on a paper 'Studies on the Onychophora VII. The early embryonic stages of Peripatopsis, and some general considerations concerning the morphology and phylogeny of the arthropoda' by Sidnie Milana Manton to David Christie Martin, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society
Date12 January 1948
DescriptionHe thinks the other referee is wrong for suggesting that the paper be cut down and then leaving it to him to suggest how it can be shortened. The first half of the paper is valuable and written in excellent style. Finds it hard to report on the second part as no-one in the country knows more about this subject than the author. It should be published as it stands.
