TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir David Bruce
Date12 July 1911
Description'The letter to the CO asking for Gibbons went in over a fortnight ago, and I went and saw the DG as I promised on the afternoon of the anti Typhoid Cttee [Committee], and he said he would give the application his "most favourable consideration". I have heard nothing since.
As regards Fraser's reports they have no been typed and are here but I have not read them yet. They cannot be published in the present number of the SS [Sleeping Sickness] Reports as they came in too late for that.'
