TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Dr Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 October 1904
DescriptionThe Royal Society proposes to send to the Hydrographer of the Admiralty, a printed copy of the minutes of the meeting at which he was present[?]. This would be the Royal Society's official statement on what was agreed. If Glazebrook would like a copy, then both documents can be sent together.

A long letter has come from Drygalski, the Director of the German South Polar Expedition, proposing international co-operation in magnetic matters. The letter has been sent on to Dr Charles Chree to consider, and perhaps Glazebrook would also be able to collaborate with Chree on a report into the matter.
