Date23 April 1908
In reply to Sir Charles Lucas' letter of the 15th inst[ant (no 12472/1908), I have to state that the question of providing accommodation for the proposed National Bureau for Sleeping Sickness will be submitted to the Council of the Royal Society at its next meeting on the 30th inst[ant]. The Officers are prepared to recommend to the Council that the same facilities should be provided as were promised in the case of the projected International Bureau.'
