TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to [W S] Bruce
Date4 January 1907
DescriptionThe map, which is being returned today, looks very well. Presumes he will have it printed off at Edinburgh and he will let the Royal Society have copies as may be required for insertion in the Antarctic volume which will contain the 'Scotia' material. The Royal Society will undertake the other illustrations. One of them 'Plan of the Copeland Observatory' is so clumsily drawn, that Geikie is returning it to Bruce for it to be redone.
