DescriptionIn the course of the investigations into tropical diseases carried out under the auspices of the Royal Society it has become urgently desirable to have under observation in this country animals infected with Surra.

The animals never arrived and Foster has just learned that they cannot be despatched without permission. Asks if permission be granted.
