TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Ernest E Austen
Date29 August 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Austen's letter of 28 August, Geikie has arranged to have a copy of Part VI of the Sleeping Sickness Commission to be posed to Austen. Regarding the 20 reprints of Austen's paper in that part, which Austen says were asked for by Professor [Edwin Ray] Lankester, no record of such a request appears to be among the Society's papers. Part VI was not printed by the Society but the Foreign Office, in persuance of an arrangement made by Professor Lankester with Sir Clement Hill.
