TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Dr D Harris
Date17 February 1908
DescriptionGeikie's attention has been called to a paper by Dr Sydner Ringer entitled 'report of the influence of rheumatic sodium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate on muscular contraction' in which the phenomenon described is similar to that in Harris' paper which appeared in the last published part of the Proceedings of the Royal Society. Geikie gives Harris the opportunity to make some reference to Dr Ringer's paper in the form of a short piece which might be injected in the next Proceedings. Geikie will be glad to know if Harris is willing to do this.
