TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Dr Wilson
Date23 December 1907
DescriptionGeikie received Wilson's letter whilst at Haslemere and delayed responding until he returned to the office to look into the matter of map A, a copy of which he previously believed had already been sent to him, but has now directed that it be despatched that day.

He anticipates no difficulty in Wilson's having the three blocks he has selected from the photo, to accompany Royd's paper. Harrison suggests having cliches made from them ay once, to be used when Wilson is ready, but notes that the staff are currently dispersed due to the Christmas holiday so it will need to wait until the following week.

Wilson's packet of cloud forms was awaiting Harrison on his return to the office.
