TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 January 1905
DescriptionCan't find that any date was fixed for the meeting of the small sub-committee that was to draw up the programme of work to be submitted to the Foreign Office, if it was settled privately, asks for details. Expedition seems desirable[?]. It would not be possible to have this meeting, and the meeting of the Tropical Diseases Committee before Council meets. The Council ought to know and approve of all deputations to the government, so it should be brought before it, and authority obtained for the proposed conference.
