|Copy letter from Joseph Larmor, to the Secretary, the Imperial Academy of Sciences, Vienna
|17 January 1905
|Acquaints the Secretary with the steps that have been taken regarding the African Geodetic Arc, in following out the resolutions adopted by the International Association of Academies in 1904. It would appear that the project, though hopeful, is not yet in a position to justify taking any immediate steps in the further diplomatic action agreed to by the International Association, with the view to the extension of Struve's arc to Egypt. The Society is sending a statement on the lines of this letter to the Imperial Academy of Sciences of St Petersburg, which moved in the matter last May.
