Letter from M C Potter, on his paper 'On a bacterial disease in turnips' to Michael Foster

Reference number: RR/15/103

Date: 12 November 1900

Description

Sectional committee: [Botany]

Thanks Foster for his letter and kindness in offering to communicate his paper. Shall be quite content for it to appear in the Proceedings and is cutting some of the figures out as suggested. Includes a list of criticisms of the paper with references to particular pages, these have been annotated by Potter in reply. Has made some amendments to meet the attached criticisms but notes these are partly due to a misreading of the text.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, 1900].
