TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to the Secretary of State for the Colonies
Date13 April 1905
DescriptionReferring to his letter to the Secretary of 3 April regarding Sleeping Sickness, Geikie enclosed a memorandum concerning the case of Sleeping Sickness which has been drawn up and signed by a few of the Fellows who have either taken part in, or closely watched, the progress of the investigation of this disease [no enclosure]. It is hoped their strong testimony will show that although the pathology of the disease has not yet been completely made out, the fundamental facts have been ascertained which will fully justify the action which the Society recommend His Majesty's Government take.
