Since the plans of the International Health Division of The Rockefeller Foundation for investigations of typhus fever in North
Africa have reached the stage at which the Foundation desires your transfer to Algiers to serve as the Director of its investigative
team in that area, the occasion has arisen for your detachment from the United States of America Typhus Commission in accordance
with previous agreements. I have therefore given directions for your relief from membership on the Commission and for the
issuance of orders to facilitate your move from Cairo to Algiers.
Your service as a member of the United States of America Typhus Commission have been deeply appreciated. I wish to thank
you for your contribution to the accomplishments of the Commission in the first phases of its activities and wish you success
in the important new undertaking you will direct for the benefit of civilian public health in North Africa.
