TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Professor Edward Alfred Minchin, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date21 July 1906
DescriptionHas Minchin's letter of the previous day and is obliged for his views as to what has been ascertained regarding the trypanosomes of Sleeping Sickness and what lines of zoological research should be pursued. Geikie's chief aim in writing was however to find if Minchin and Lieutenant Gray's joint work for the Sleeping Sickness Commission was complete and if not, when he thought it would be. Would also like to know when the full report of Minchin's work at Entebbe will be in the Society's hands. Minchin's conjoint paper with Gray is in the printers hands and a proof will shortly be received from them.
