TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to [Professor Albert Charles] Seward, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date1 February 1907
DescriptionAs Professor Groom's paper is so bulky, Geikie hinks it is best to avoid sending it to any referee, who if they refuse, would have trouble packing it up again. Geikie is writing to Professors Bower and Traill to see if they are willing to act. If they agree, Geikie proposes to embody the recommendations in Seward's letter. Sending an example for him to modify if he wishes [no enclosures]. He can write to them personally if he likes, but there is an advantage to putting all the information down onto the referee form.
