Date25 May 1905
DescriptionSir A Geikie has handed him Milne's letter regarding a level to use in the examination of the 'Discovery' records. The Society has no such thing but he has been to the Astronomical Society and finds they have several instruments of various kinds that might be described as levels, and that if he will let Mr Wesley know more precisely the instrument wanted, they will be happy to lend such, if they have it. Milne could communicate direct with Wesley.
