|Title||Copy letter from Sir Michael Foster, to Dr Patrick Manson, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||3 June 1902|
|Description||The paper by Dr Edington, 'On the Production of a Malarial Type of South African Horse-sickness' that Manson communicated, has been before the Chairman of the Committee, who before accepting it, sought the advice of a Committee member. The opinion of said member is enclosed, and they suggest that Edington is in fact looking at a totally different disease. Rather than Horse-sickness, he believes Edington is dealing with 'Bilious Fever', or 'Horse Malaria'.|
Foster asks Manson, if in light of this opinion, he thinks Edington should be given the option of withdrawing the paper under Standing Order 31.
