TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Director, The Lister Institute
Date14 October 1912
DescriptionSir David Bruce requires shipments of 50 white rats and 25 guineas-pigs to be sent to him in Nyasaland [Malawi] for experimental purposes. The Lister Institute were good enough to supply the first batch, and Harrison would like to know if they are able to supply and despatch the animals at the beginning of next month and every three months thereafter until further notice. It will be a great assistance and promotion of the investigation. Any expenses will be deferred out of the funds of the Commission.
