TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Frederick Walker Mott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 July 1906
DescriptionHas Mott's letter of 25 July and encloses the manuscript of Dr Edridge-Green's paper on 'Observations on Hue Perception', which Mott wishes to withdraw [no enclosures]. In reply to Mott's request for the loan of the blocks illustrating his own and Dr Watson's papers, the Council at their last meeting granted leave to Mott to have electros of the required blocks, and on hearing from the Messrs, Bale and Danielsson, the blocks will be sent to them. An edition of 1500 copies of each of the Sleeping Sickness reports, part one to five, was printed and Mott was therefore correct in naming that number to the Colonial Office.

Asks the exact title of Mott's paper now being set up by the Colonial Office for the Sleeping Sickness Report. Mott's manuscript was sent on to the Colonial Office without a record of the title being kept.
