|Title||Copy letter from Michael Foster, to Alfred Beit, 26 Park Lane, W. |
|Date||14 May 1897|
|Description||Foster is directed by the President and Council of the Society to assure Beit that they accept with great pleasure the contribution of £200 so kindly offered, through their esteemed Fellow, Dr [Thomas] Lauder Brunton, towards the expenses of the investigation of the Tsetse Fly disease being carried out by the Society. |
They are 'peculiarly gratefu ' to find assistance to scientific inquiry so generously given from private sources; and he is to express the hope that even if the present inquiry should not immediately lead to the discovery of an infallible remedy, it will at least have made a step onward in that direction to the great benefit of the important interests of South Africa.
