TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H J Read, Colonial Office
Date29 September 1906
DescriptionRead's letter which came on Thursday addressed to Sir A Geikie, Harrison sent on to Haslemere unopened, but has since heard that Geikie will not be at Haslemere until Monday or Tuesday. If it referred to anything that ought to be attended to at the Society, Harrison asks to know. Has just returned from leave and is therefore puzzled by a letter from the Crown Agents saying they cancel their letter previously written to the effect that they would undertake the printing of Part VIII of the Sleeping Sickness Reports.
