TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Patrick Manson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 October 1902
Description[First part of letter illegible] Sir John Kirk thinks that it may be important for Dr Christy to attempt trace the disease down the Congo and considers that the Royal Society ought to write to the Foreign Office to obtain facilities for him. Kirk thinks the Society ought to act at once and since it is difficult to get together a meeting of the Malaria Committee with Sir M Foster abroad and others off the Committee scattered, Harrison shall be glad to know if Manson concurs with Kirk's opinion.
