TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Dr [Richard Tetley] Glazebrook
Date10 April 1908
DescriptionGeikie thanks Glazebrook for taking up the question of the Antarctic Magnetic work. I would be best if the Royal Society should receive from Glazebrook all the curves in a state fit for direct reproduction by photography. What Geikie has seen so far would be quite sufficient for purpose of reproduction as plates. Geikie's own strong opinion is that the magnetic work was the main scientific object of the expedition and that which chiefly induced the Government to grant, they are bound to do the subject justice.
