TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [William Dobinson] Halliburton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 June 1901
DescriptionEncloses a paper by Harold Swithinbank on 'The Effect of the Temperature of Liquid Air upon the Vitality and Virulence of the Bacillus tuberculosis' which was sent in by Sir [James] Crichton Browne in continuation of one on 'Virulence of Dessicated Tubercular Sputum' [no enclosures]. Sir Michael Foster suggests it should be submitted to Dr [John Rose] Bradford, and Harrison asks if Halliburton agrees.

Sends three papers, introduction and appendix, which Browne has sent to be attached to this earlier paper. As there was no name on the manuscript, they assumed it was written by Browne, but it is by Swithinbank.
