TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir Archibald Geikie, KCB, Fellow of the Royal Society, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date8 April 1908
DescriptionDr Bradford is poorly again and was not able to come to the Sleeping Sickness Sub-Committee. Nothing definitive was done and most of the results reported were negative. Harrison encloses a letter from the Colonial Office, addressed to the Treasury about the Sleeping Sickness Bureau in London. The Foreign Office are supporting the letter, and suggest that the President of the Royal Society should say a word in its favour. This means, Harrison presumes, a letter from Lord Rayleigh and Harrison encloses a draft for consideration. Also enclosed is a letter from Dr Glazebrook opened accidentally.
