|Title||Draft of the preface to the second Meteorological Volume from the Discovery Expedition by Archibald Geikie|
|Description||Ammended typewritten version of earlier draft (MS/591/15/26).|
Begins with a description of the second Meteorological Volume as the last of the physical results from the National Anatarctic Expedition. States that the volume presents an opportunity to address objections made by Captain Scott concerning the fact that difficulties in observation conditions were overlooked and concerning some incorrect results. Geikie addresses Scott's concerns regarding wind direction, the noon positions of the sledge-parties, and the inability to obtain proper barometric readings.
