TitleCopy letter from Sir Michael Foster, to John William Watson Stephens and Samuel Rickard Christophers, [Fellows of the Royal Society]
Date6 November 1901
DescriptionTells Stephens and Christophers to 'go ahead', and that they are doing well. The Society is sending on 23 November an advance copy of Theobald's book. Their specimens have not arrived and in future should be directed to the Director of the British Museum. Also advises them to write to Theobald at the British Museum and not his private address. It is better that all their malaria communications should be official with the Director.
