Date22 March 1923
DescriptionInforms Hardy that a telegram reply has been received from Lord Forster [Governor General of the Commonwealth of Australia] regarding the Pan-Pacific Scientific Congress. It says that a visiting geodesist would help revive geodetic survey in Australia and would be valuable. Arranges to inform Sir Gerald Ponsonby Lenox-Conyngham of this [as he was uncertain about whether to go to the Congress, because he was not sure what interest in geodesy there would be]. Confirms the dates of the Congress: 13-22 August in Melbourne, and 23 August - 3 September in Sydney.
