TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Colonel David Bruce, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 January 1905
DescriptionThe Foreign Office is wiling to print Greig's last [Sleeping Sickness] report at once. If as Harrison thinks, it should be printed in octavo form so as to appear in the same series with the previous reports, Harrison thinks they might ask the Foreign Office to do so. Asks if Bruce can undertake the more obvious excisions of the text now, to save time, or whether he would prefer to wait until Greig can do this on his return. The sooner they can send the report to the Foreign Office while the matter is fresh in Clement Hill's mind, the better.
