TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H J Read
Date10 October 1908
DescriptionHarrison would be glad to know whether any definite arrangements have been made for meeting the expense of the equipment of [David] Bruce's latest Commission to Uganda. A long bill has been received for apparatus and packing-cases, but it has been furnished too late to obtain his certificate of its correctness. Perhaps he lodged duplicates of his order at Read's office. The items against which no charges are made are no doubt things belong to the party, which Townson 7 Mercer have packed for them. Harrison would be glad to know how the matter stands.
