TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to [Colonel David] Bruce, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date14 November 1906
DescriptionDiscusses the production of the Malta Fever Reports. The Sleeping Sickness Report is being put into pages and Geikie proposes that Minchin's Tsetse Fly paper shall be inserted just before his paper already in type in the Sleeping Sickness report. Also thinks that after the latter paper they should print the abstract of Minchin's communication the other day to the Royal Society.

Asks if Bruce will let the Society have all the manuscript and printed papers that were sent to the printers for the forthcoming Sleeping Sickness Report. Some questions arise as to which it is desirable to see the original material used by the printers.
