TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Professor [Alfred Cort] Haddon FRS
Date29 January 1908
DescriptionHaddon's letter of 15 January applying for a grant of £200 to enable Mr Wheeler to take part in an ethnological exhibition to the Pacific was laid before the President and Council who decided to refer the application to the Government Grant Committee. Mr Wheeler has already sent an application for £200 to the Committee. Geikie suggests it would do well for him to send an amended application applying for the total sum he required, £400 and returns his application form for this purpose.
