With reference to your letter of December 15, enclosing a copy of a letter from Mr A Doudney relating to a bill for animal cages supplied to the Bysaland Sleeping Sickness Commission, on the order of Sir David Bruce, for which a receipt had been obtained in advance of payment, enquiry has been made of Sir W B Leishman and I am now able to enclose (together with bill in question) a certificate from him that the Account is one that remains to be paid.
