TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 November 1904
DescriptionGeikie is at the Royal Society everyday from 11am to 2pm, and can meet when it suits Dyer. Whenever he wishes a meeting of the Indian Advisory Committee to be held, it will be summoned. Geikie thinks Dyer is under some misapprehension as to the way in which paper of the Committees are brought forward. All the documents which accumulate after the last meeting are kept in a separate portfolio, labelled 'Agenda'. All the papers which have been dealt with are placed in boxes labelled with the name of each Committees. The portfolios for the Indian Advisory Committee appear to be in order.
