TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 September 1903
DescriptionHas received by this morning with Lankester's letter the report by Mr Theobald on Culicidae from Uganda. Since it does not apparently directly bear on Sleeping Sickness, Harrison assumes they need not keep back the second volume of Sleeping Sickness Reports for this paper. Inclusion of said paper would considerably delay the reports appearance. Queries if the map in Theobald's paper can be produced by modifying the map engraved for Dr Chirsty's report, encloses proof of the latter [not enclosed].

Regarding authority for publication, assumes he may regard Lankester as Acting Chairman of the Sleeping Sickness Committee.
