TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Professor [John Rose] Bradford, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date3 November 1905
DescriptionAt the last meeting of the Tropical Diseases Committee they had before them a report of the Principal Medical Officer of East Africa which was communicated to them by the Colonial Office with a request that they should return it after it was considered. It occurred to the Committee that the report might contain material of sufficient interest and importance to be included in the next report on Sleeping Sickness, if the Colonial Office were willing to authorize publishing it. Major Ross and Bradford were named as advisers in the matter. Ross has seen the report and Geikie now encloses it for Bradford [not enclosed]. Asks if Bradford considers any part of the report worthy of being printed in the Society's Sleeping Sickness reports.
