TitleLetter from Thomas Henry Huxley, to George Gabriel Stokes, regarding a paper [attributed] 'On the structure and development of the skull in sturgeons (Acipenser ruthenus and A. sturio)' by William Kitchen Parker
Date30 July 1880
DescriptionConsiders there to be good ground for hesitating in spending extra on the paper. If this is brought to the author's attention, his friend Mr Bradgate [?], 'will come to his rescue'.

Addendum, has sent a circular signed under the previous President. Does not think Richard Owen will see it, 'but the point is not worth making a fuss about'. The next issue of the Proceedings will start with a blank page, Edwin Ray Lankester having objected to some of the conditions. Will prepare some more regulations for authors. Refers to Joseph Norman Lockyer, William Davidson Niven and James Dewar. The 'junior secretary's life is becoming a burden'.
