Date5 December 1905
DescriptionTurner's letter of 2 December only reached yesterday evening. Has put down the memoir by Professor Wilson and Dr Hall for reading on 14 December but as there are so many papers on the list he is afraid it will not be possible to allow Professor Wilson as much as half an hour. Geikie shall be in Edinburgh for a couple of days next week and hopes to see Turner.
