TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Professor [Sydney John] Hickson
Date11 March 1908
DescriptionTwo days ago Sir Rubert Boyce came here with a paper by Messrs Moore and Breinl which he was communicating, and wishes to have read, at the meeting of the [Royal] Society. Geikie was out of town and the list of papers to be read at tomorrow's meeting had already gone to the printers. Professor Bradford thought that the paper might be put down for reading but without the question of its ultimate publication. Geikie thinks its right to make this explanation to the Chairman of the Zoological Committee.
