DescriptionSir Archibald Geikie has been asking today whether anything has been done regarding a matter that was mentioned at a meeting of Bruce's Malta Fever Committee in August. It was suggested that the India Office should be approached with the view of getting Captain Liston, now on plague duty at Bombay, turned on to work at the Lister Institute in connection with Malta Fever. Geikie is under the impression Bruce was to make enquiries on the subject.
