TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Chairman of the Physiology Sectional Committee
Date23 May 1902
DescriptionSending the report on Dr Edlington's paper 'On the Production of a Malarial Type of South African Horse-Sickness'. In view of the adverse nature of the report, Harrison asks the Chairman to kindly say whether a letter should be sent to Dr Manson (who communicated the paper), suggesting that the paper should be withdrawn.

Suggests a meeting of the Physiology Committee could be arranged, as they have not met for sometime, although perhaps this could wait until the reports on the paper by Wright and Windsor are received.
