Date3 December 1902
DescriptionSir M Foster has had a letter from Dr Christy, one of the members of the Royal Society Commission investigating Sleeping Sickness in Uganda. Christy says he has sent some negatives of photographs taken in connection with his work, to Keltie. Christy does not seem to have understood that anything of this kind connected with the Commission is the property of the Society. Will be much obliged if Keltie will forward the negatives when they arrive.
