TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Sir Michael Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date31 August 1904
DescriptionThanks him for his letter and documents. Geikie has replied to the Indian letter as Foster suggested, and has made a note that the Indian Advisory Committee meeting should be called after the vacation, and that a printed copy of the Programme [of Research Work] should be sent to the members of that Committee, and also of the Observatories Committee.

Is glad to see his 'fist'[?] stronger and firmer than ever!
