TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Mr Ferrar
Date25 February 1907
DescriptionRegarding the publication of the scientific results of the 'Discovery', it is very desirable that those connected with sea water analyses and temperature should be put into shape now with as little delay as possible. Understands from H N Dickson that when he and Mr Manley came to tabulate the results of their work on the sea water sample, they found that the rearrangement of notes could be easily done by Ferrar, who made the observations. They were sent to him in 1905. Asks if he could now draw up the tables for insertion of the chlorine values and any other determinations.
