DescriptionEncloses a letter [CD/51/43] from [John] Roscoe, in which the Royal Society can see that Roscoe is 'delayed, embarrassed, and possibly put to considerable expense because the Governor of East Africa has not received instructions from the Colonial Office to give him passes on the railway and to pass his goods through the custom-house free of duty'.
