TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Sir William Macewen, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 March 1907
DescriptionMacewen's paper has gone to the printers, but a proof will be sent to him with as little delay as possible. Asks him to mark the places for the illustrations. His photographs are being returned today. It will save time if he keeps them close until the proof arrives, and he can then number those which he selects in the order in which he wishes them to appear. Assumes that he intends for them to come in as text-figures, rather than separate plates.
