TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Colonel David Bruce, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date17 October 1904
DescriptionThanks him for his note. Harrison has shown Geikie Staff Surgeon Shaw's letter, but Geikie does not see how the Royal Society can interfere, as Shaw is working for the Admiralty, and therefore if he feels he has been treated badly he should appeal to the Navy authorities. His case is quite [?] from those of Johnston and Horrocks. Geikie believes Shaw would be content with being employed in something more interesting.
