TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Under Secretary of State for the Colonies
Date17 July 1901
DescriptionRegarding their previous correspondence on the subject of the telegram to Dr Christophers of the Malaria Commission respecting the use of native huts by the Ashanti Field Force, Harrison has spoken to Sir Michael Foster on the subject, and he does not think there was any formal covering letter to the telegram, which was probably sent either as the result of a conversation with Mr Lucas, or of an informal letter from Foster to Lucas.
