Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Ernest William MacBride, [c. 02 January 1916]

Scope and Contents

MacBride thanks Ewart for his telegram with the details he needed about Darbishire for his obituary, which he has sent to Nature.

He is glad that Ewart gives no countenance to the 'crook theories' about the layers of the embryo.
