The question of the size of the impression to be printed of the volumes containing the scientific results of the Antarctic Expedition has now to be settled, and I am desired on the part of the Royal Society to ascertain whether the Council of the Geographical Society has any proposals to make in reference to this matter.
I am, Sir, your obedient servant,
Arch [Archibald] Geikie
Sec. R.S. [Secretary, Royal Society]'.
