TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H J Read, Colonial Office
Date5 May 1904
DescriptionHarrison refers to a suggestion made by Read at a meeting of the Tropical Diseases Committee, that the best way of settling matters with the Admiralty would be if an Officer of the Royal Society were to see Sir Henry Norbury, to be accompanied by Read. If he is correct in this impression, Harrison asks if Read can spare time early the following week at around midday, to allow Harrison to call on him.

He would ideally like the adminitrative details settled prior to the Council meeting on 19 May, to allow the investigation to proceed with minimal delay.
