TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Secretary, Royal Society
Date23 April 1906
DescriptionWhite explains that he has taken the meteorological observations from Discovery to the printers, who will attempt to fit three days observations on one page. He suggests this may be too small for practical use, but Geikie will be able to pass judgement on the proof. Messrs Harrison & Sons are to set up 3 days of observations on Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society size paper.

Geikie and Mr Shaw at the Meteorological Office will be sent proofs in the next couple of days.
