Comment: J.W. Ross originally nominated C. Finlay as sole candidate for the Prize (entry 26-0), but then realized he could nominate several candidates to share the Prize, and therefore sent a new nomination, where he proposed the Prize be shared by C. Finlay and H. Carter (entry 26-99, originally 26-b).
