TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Alfredo Antunes Kanthack
Date4 January 1897
DescriptionHarrison hopes he is not asking too much from Kanthack's volunteered help on the Tsetse Fly Committee, but as he has been given the task of editing the new edition of Bruce's report, Harrison asks if he can determine the numbers and order in which the two plates should be inserted. He encloses the plates and asks that they be returned as soon as is convenient.

Harrison also asks for the return of the last proof of the report, as this will allow him to 'push the matter forward'.
