TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Henry George Plimmer, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date26 October 1903
DescriptionThe omission to summon Plimmer to Malaria Committee meetings has not been accidental. Harrison's instructions were that Plimmer was added as an accessory member exclusively for advising on the Tsetse fly disease, and that he was only to be summoned to meetings when that subject came before them. In view of the developments which have recently taken place in the subjects brought before the Committee, Harrison will raise the question again.
