TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr John Scott Keltie
Date10 December 1902
DescriptionRetained Keltie's letter from Dr Christy, which he now returns [not enclosed], until he had an opportunity of mentioning the matter to the Sleeping Sickness Committee. The Committee decided it would be best to let Keltie's photographer keep for the present, custody of the negatives Dr Christy is sending over, and make the prints according to Christy's instructions so as to secure them before the negatives spoil. It should be clearly explained to the photographer that the photographs are the property of the Royal Society and no use may be made of them without the assent of the Society.
