TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr C Christy, Royal Societies' Club
Date3 June 1904
DescriptionHarrison explains that what Christy believes to be a "glaring error" by the cartographer in his report, was in fact a correction made by the Chairman of the Sleeping Sickness Committee into letterpress of the map provided by Christy and incorporated into their third report. He feels any alteration to the Report is unjustified, and in the event of the Committee granting authority to adopt Christy's wording, an erratum slip would be the means by which to make the change.

Harrison reminds Christy that these are the Reports of a Royal Society Committee.
