TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 September 1903
DescriptionHeard from Sir M Foster this morning, who sent Lankester's letter about the Tsetse Fly, for preservation and reply. The Society has heard nothing more since [David] Bruce's telegram stating that he was starting for England. If anything comes throwing light on the question of [Dr] Nabarro or others staying, Harrison will let Lankester know and get out a letter at once on the lines of Lankester's suggestion.
