Offers to work up the clinical features of sleeping sickness if Low and Castellani have not done so. Asks if Capt Grieg is to consider himself a member of the committee. Asks about who will take over the equipment, and recommends a two-year investigation. Suggests Castellani 'be severely reprimanded'.
