TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to H J Read, Colonial Office
Date26 February 1908
DescriptionThe material collected under the direction of the Tropical Diseases Committee for a new number of Sleeping Sickness reports is ready for the printers. Harrison asks if he should send it directly to Read, or officially to the Colonial Office with a request that it may be printed. Some of the official reports were accompanied by maps, but Colonel Bruce does not think that reproduction of these maps is very essential, so that as the copy stands they have struck out the references to them. If the Colonial Office thinks otherwise and wishes to have the maps reproduced, they could no doubt obtain copies of them for the purpose.
