TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Colonel David Prain, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date22 January 1906
DescriptionIn response to Prain's letter of Saturday, Geikie points out that the Board only meets once a year and that even this commitment can be avoided if the member submits his opinion in writing to the Chairman. While Geikie sympathises with Prain's concerns, he states that the workload would be light and his presence would be so useful, that he hopes he will reconsider his decision.
