TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Dr [Samuel Rickard] Christophers, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date10 March 1902
DescriptionAfter receiving the letter from Christophers and Dr [John William Watson] Stephens, the Malaria Committee came the the conclusion it would be most desirable for Christophers to stay on for another six months in order to continue the experiments into Malaria at Mian Mir. The Committee have approached the Colonial Office for funds to assist the extended enquiry. They also consider it appropriate to defer the publication of the report until the experiment is completed.

Regarding 'The Relation of Species of Anopheles to Malarial Endemicity', they propose to publish it after some revision together with Stephens. The Committee has also decided to publish 'The Classification of Indian anopheles into Natural Groups' subject to some revision together with Mr Theobald.
