TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Edwin Ray Lankester, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date9 March 1906
DescriptionGeikie explains that they have received an extremely voluminous report from Gray and Tulloch on Sleeping Sickness at Entebbe, which has the appearance of being the full details of every observation and experiment. Colonel David Bruce has estimated a month to reduce the manuscript, and has passed it to Geikie.

Geikie states that he lacks the expert knowledge of the disease to edit the report. He asks if Lankester will look at it, either by visiting, or he can send it by messenger if Lankester prefers.

Includes a crossed out draft of page one on p235.
