TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 November 1904
DescriptionGeikie agrees with Lankester that a permanent post [in protozoology] would be desirable, and is willing to get going what he recommends. However it would be well to consider the proposals which the Colonial Office is making. Sir Michael Foster was here, and Geikie wrote down the substance of what he said. Foster sent it back to him with some alterations, which Geikie is sending [no enclosures]. Asks what Lankester thinks. Also sending on some documents from the Foreign Office with a request for guidance in the matter [no enclosures]. Asks his advice on an answer.
