|Description||In response to Moffat's letter, Geikie communicates the judgment of the Tropical Diseases Committee, who have listened to explanations given in correspondence, and decided to exonerated Dr Ross from blame, and lay the blame with Dr Low.|
Geikie, in response to the latter portion of Moffat's letter, explains that they have made an urgent request to the Government of India for Captain Greig to be allowed to remain in Uganda for as long as desirable to work on the Sleeping Sickness Commission; consequently his fears with regard to Dr Ross and Lieutenant Gray may not materialise. Gray is stated to have been actively appointed to the Commission, having been selected by the Tropical Diseases Committee. Meanwhile, Dr Ross, although given assistance by the observers in Entebbe to work in the Laboratory of the Comission, was not chosen or appointed a member of the Commission. Gray will be who they expect to, at least temporarily, take on Greig's role, should he be called away, with funds for Gray's employment to come from the Uganda Medical Service. The Committee could not consent to Ross heading the Sleeping Sickness investigation, given that they were uninvolved in his despatch to Uganda.
