TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Mr Read
Date21 July 1905
DescriptionA letter from Professor Minchin from which Geikie encloses an excerpt shows that the project of moving the laboratory at Entebbe appears to have taken definite steps. The Society's strong objections to such a step have only been confirmed since Read was good enough in April to telegraph to Entebbe. Sincerely hopes no action will be taken at the Society until the opinion of the Royal Society in the matter has been heard.
