TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 October 1901
DescriptionHarrison has to provide for the annual report of the Council, an account from the Royal Society point of view of the Meeting of the International Association of Academies held in Easter in Paris and as he was not there himself he cannot draw up an adequate account. Both the Secretaries of the Society left before the close of the meeting and also consider themselves incompetent to provide this and have advised Harrison to apply to one of the delegates who was present throughout the meeting. Harrison therefore turns to Geikie and asks for a short statement suitable for Council. Asks for the material by the end of the week if possible.
