TitleCopy letter from Sir Michael Foster to, Professor Alexander Agassiz
Date30 January 1903
DescriptionThe Royal Society will be delighted to hear about his latest work, and Foster suggests 19 March. Explains the procedure for the running of the meetings, and states that the geologists present will doubtless want to say something, hence it would be desirable to keep the meeting under an hour. Asks him to send an abstract about the size of a paper for 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', or something of that size.
