TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Dr [Charles] Chree
Date12 March 1908
DescriptionGeikie was under the impression that the Royal Society were waiting to know the report of further experience by Chree's assistant as to tracing the curves with the instrument, the samples of his work sent on 5 November. It seems to Geikie that if Chree picks out a sufficient number of typical curves it would be more effective to have them photographed than traced. If Chree agrees to this Geikie asks that he lets him have them. Geikie quite expects the meteorological volume to be out by Easter and atmospheric electricity has been included.
