TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr R W Johnstone
Date10 June 1904
DescriptionHarrison has been handed Johnstone's letter of 8 June by Archibald Geikie, which he believes has been answered in person, but further sends the names of the Advisory Board who have been appointed by the Royal Society, in accordance with the Government's request that they supervise the investigation - Colonel David Bruce, Dr Edward Klein, Dr Charles James Martin, Professor Syndey Martin and Fleet Surgeon Bassett Smith.

The Local Government Board have officially consented by letter to Johnstone's despatch for this enquiry, detailing the rates of pay and allowance, which Harrison believes Geikie has already discussed with him and finalised with the Colonial Office.
