Letter from Sidney Frederic Harmer, on a paper 'The colour-physiology of higher crustaceae' by Frederick Keeble and Frederick William Gamble to Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society

Reference number: RR/15/361

Date: 12 December 1902

Description

Sectional committee: [Zoology]

He is unable to attend the meeting of the Zoology Committee next week as he is very busy and it is doubtful whether he can be in London on Wednesday. In case he is not able to come he would like to state that from what he has seen of the paper, as published in the Proceedings and the Quarterly Journal of the Microscopy Society, he is quite disposed to think that their full paper should be published in Philosophical Transactions. The work seems interesting and important.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1902].

Endorsed on recto as received 15 December 1902.
