Description'Dear Sir,
At the last meeting of the Tropical Diseases Committee of the Royal Society it was reported that you had been enough to offer to the Committee, for purposes of experiment in the treatment of trypanosome diseases, some new organic arsenic compounds which you have prepared; and I am directed by the Committee to express to you their best thanks for the offer, which they are glad to accept, and I am to ask you to be good enough to forward the drugs here, when they will be placed in the hands of the member of the Committee, Mr H G Plimmer, who has been for some time engaged upon therapeutical experiments of behalf of the Committee. I am at the same time to put you in direct communication with Mr Plimmer, who will be glad to consult you with regard to these drugs. Mr Plimmer's address is 3, Hall Road, NW.'
