TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison encloses a note of the agenda forming the main business for which the Tropical Diseases Committee has been summoned, along with correspondence from Dr Moffatt and from Captain Greig, the latter of which Colonel Bruce intends to base his communication to the Committee on, when it meets on Wednesday. Greig's letters are, however, private so have not yet been communicated to the Committee, though Harrison sends them to Lankester for information. Bruce and Sir Michael Foster believe that the observations are important, and so intend to ask the Committee that they may be presented as a paper to the Royal Society in the form they are prepared for communication.

Harrison asks if the Moffatt correspondence should be printed and circulated before the meeting.
