TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date25 November 1904
DescriptionAs the Antarctic Observers are now paid out of the Museum funds[?], it would be well if they would send their claims for the time spent on their work for which they were to be paid by the Royal Society. Lankester was good enough to say he would certify those claims. Ferrar claims £19 for his time, whatever Lankester thinks is fair, the Royal Society shall be ready to do.
