Reference number: RR/67/6

Date: 05 April 1940

Description

Sectional committee: [Botany]

Apologies for the delay in answering the letter. He doesn't think the figures in part one have nay useful purpose and are not of help to non-biological readers. If the omission allows for one plate instead of two, he will advocate it. Notes that the species have been determined by the British Museum and no further action is required.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 1940 as 'The electric strength of some solid dielectrics'].

Endorsed on verso as received 5 April 1940.
