TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Secretary, Royal Society
Date10 October 1906
DescriptionThe enclosed came from Colonel [David] Bruce this morning and tells a satisfactory story. Seeing that some more matter has yet to come in to complete volume five [of the Sleeping Sickness reports], and remembering that Geikie likes to see these reports before they go to press, he thinks no serious delay will be incurred by sending Horrock's paper herewith [not enclosed].

Is sorry they could not find the copy of the address Geikie sent to Aberdeen, if he can yet find it the Society might send it to 'Nature' for next week. Bale & Danielsson have written that the contemplate reduction in the size of the page would not cause any difficulty whatever in the printing of the plates of Dr Mott's report.
