TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Professor Rubert William Boyce, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 April 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Boyce's letter of 7 April, Geikie acknowledges receipt of the three papers which he enclosed. There is only one meeting of the Society before Easter and its programme is quite full, but he will see that Boyce's papers, if accepted, are taken as early as possible after Easter. Regarding the memorandum about Sleeping Sickness, to which Boyce refers it was only sent to a small number of Fellows whose opinion was desired as the cause of the disease, and was not meant to be made public.
