TitleCopy letter from John Rose Bradford, to The Under Secretary of State, Colonial Office
Date2 February 1911
DescriptionAdverting to Bradford's letter of 24 May 1910, and to their reply of 4 June 1910, on the subject of the Commission of Lieutenant Fraser to continue the Royal Society's experiments in the Laboratory at Mpumu, Bradford has been requested by the Tropical Diseases Committee of the Royal Society to say that they are up to the present time without any information as to the progress of the investigations which Fraser was instructed to pursue.

Bradford sent a letter to Fraser requesting him to carry on the experiments already started by Captains Hamerton and Bateman, under the direction of Sir David Bruce, but no acknowledgement of the letter has arrived. The Tropical Diseases Committee would therefore be greatly obliged to be furnished with any information regarding Fraser and the course of the enquiry.
