Letter from Carl Frederick Abel Pantin, on a paper 'Studies on the Onychophora VII. The early embryonic stages of Peripatopsis, and some general considerations concerning the morphology and phylogeny of the arthropoda' by Sidnie Milana Manton to David Christie Martin, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society

Reference number: RR/70/162

Date: 30 January 1948

Description

He went through the paper hurriedly but it is a 'really first class piece of work' and should be published as it stands. It could be pruned in some places to become more readable. He doesn't think the other referee has understood the paper fully. In this case, the author has a 'complete right to his opinions whatever the views of the referee'.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1949].
