TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to The Secretary of State for India
Date13 October 1904
DescriptionThe President wishes for them to know that at the request of the Colonial Office, Admiralty and War Office, a Committee chaired by Colonel David Bruce has been engaged for some months in the investigation into Malta Fever. As this fever has been reported in India, it would be of much importance for the Indian government to assist in the enquiry. The Committee suggests allowing Captain Glen Liston, of the Plague Research Laboratory, Parel, Bombay, to work for a year at the Lister Institute, in order to aid the discovery of a vaccine.
