DescriptionHarrison quotes from a letter received from Captain Greig, sent from Entebbe on 5 May, complaining that due to inadequate packaging the centrifuge had rust on the point of the spindle and on the bar of the handle, and the Xylol tin had leaked due to three holes having punctured it. Greig demands that more Xylol be sent and notes that the value of the centrifuge has been diminished due to the manner in which it was transported.
