|Title||Copy letter from Archibald Geikie, to [Edwin Ray] Lankester, [Fellow of the Royal Society]|
|Date||13 July 1905|
|Description||On 9 June Geikie sent Lankester a letter addressed to Geikie by Major Ross, about some claim for scientific discovery made by Sir P Manson. Colonel [David] Bruce, tells Lankester that Major Ross has been asking what action the Society proposes to take in the matter, if any. Asks if Lankester has anything to propose. |
Some important discoveries are being made in regard to Malta Fever and some questions about Sleeping Sickness have also arisen. Seems desirable that there should be a meeting of the Tropical Diseases Committee before people leave town for the holidays. Suggests 25 July at 2.30pm. This is the same day as a meeting of the committee on Cattle Diseases in India.
