TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Patrick Manson, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George
Date4 February 1904
DescriptionWith regard to the cases of Sleeping Sickness to be brought over to England, Harrison encloses a rough copy of the response to the Foreign Office's letter which was read at the meeting of the Tropical Disease Committee. He explains that the Foreign Office has stated that they cannot make an estimate of the costs involved, so Harrison asks if Manson could advise them. In particular, if Manson could send someone over to select the cases and bring them back.
