TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Professor Albert Charles Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 January 1907
DescriptionA large memoir by Dr Percy Groom on 'Longitudal Symmetry in Phanerogamia' communicated by Dr Dukinfield Henry Scott has arrived. There has not been time to make an estimate of costs, but in the meantime Geikie is sending the Abstract to Seward for his consideration. It will likely take up to 150 to 160 pages of 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. There are some 20 small figures, and 30 loose sheets of curve diagrams numbered 1 to 71. Asks if Seward would like the whole paper, and to which referees it should be submitted.
