TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Secretary, Royal Society
Date26 July 1906
DescriptionHas seen Colonel [David] Bruce regarding the enclosed letter concerning the disposal of apparatus brought for the Mediterranean Fever Commission [not enclosed], as some of the Official Correspondence which was enclosed appeared to be based on misapprehension.

It seems reasonable the apparatus should be left in Malta, the only question is since £200 was from the Government Grant and the apparatus is therefore the property of the Government Grant Committee, the consent of that Committee should be obtained before definitely parting with it. Asks Geikie's opinion on the matter.
