TitleCopy letter from Henry Hallett Dale, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [George Henry Falkiner] Nuttall, FRS
Date23 January 1930
DescriptionReminds Professor [George Henry Falkiner] Nuttall that Dr [Arthur] W. Grace was sent by the Tropical Diseases Committee to conduct an investigation on the bacteriological complications of filariasis in British Guiana, and that afterwards Grace spent time at Dr W. H. Park's laboratory in New York carrying out experiments on strains of streptococci. Since Grace's report on this research is too long and detailed for the Proceedings, wonders whether it should be published as a special report or through a journal like the Journal of Hygiene. Asks Nuttall whether he would accept the paper to this Journal. Sends the papers to Nuttall to consider, and suggests sharing the costs of printing the tabular matter, if he will publish it. Discusses also acknowledgements to the medical staff at Georgetown, British Guiana.
