DescriptionHad Geikie's letter of 27 September yesterday morning and at once wrote and sent down to the Treasury the letter Geikie drafted. Later in the day Harrison had a telephone message from the man at the Treasury who has the matter in hand, asking what it was exactly the Royal Society advised the Treasury to do. The man proposed to write to the Foreign Office to say that unless they heard that France had definitely refused to join the Association, they proposed to ask Professor Schuster to attend the [Rome] Congress. Gathered from the tenor of Geikie's letter, read in conjunction with Professor Schuster's, that he was not inclined to stand out against taking part in this congress. Has forwarded to Geikie at Haslemere a letter from Mr Read of the Colonial Office, and a letter from the Natural History Museum about the Antarctic volumes.
