TitleReferee's report by Michael Foster, on a paper 'Points of resemblance between the suprarenal bodies of the horse and dog, and certain occasional structures in the ovary' by Charles Creighton
Datend [1878]
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Thinks the author is mistaken in his conclusions. The descriptions are interesting, but not valuable enough to warrant publication. Can only recommend the publication of the abstract. Suggests the paper be sent to another, unbiased referee, as the referee, along with Francis Maitland Balfour, are already investigating the same structures, and have come to different conclusions than the current author.

Subject: Physiology, Zoology
