Description'Dear Professor Meldola,
Your memorandum about the Indigo addressed to Dr Bradford will be duly incorporated in the Committee's report to the India Office. The justification for the Committee's making representations upon the subject is not a definite request from the Government; but it arises upon the Report of the Board of Scientific Advice, and their Programme of Work, which are submitted to the Committee by the Government for comment, and in which there are several references to the Indigo plant and industry.'
