TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Commander Chetwynd, 31 Abingdon Street, Westminster, S.W.
Date31 August 1907
DescriptionIn answer to Chetwynd's enquiry abut the publication of his Antarctic Magnetic results, Geikie directs Harrison to say the whole Magnetic Section is still awaiting publication as it is not yet complete. There is more material to come from other contributors. The magnetic work already in hand is by no means sufficient to make a volume by itself. The Society cannot there make any statement as to the date of publication, but they are putting materials steadily in hand as it is received.
