TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Professor [Sydney John] Hickson
Date1 May 1908
Description'Dear Professor Hickson,
Dr A Smith Woodward, who is a member of the Soiree Committee, has suggested that an interesting brief discourse ("Lecturette", to use the customary barbarism) might be given at the Society Soiree this month by Mr C Gordon Hewitt, [BSc], on the common house fly. We have seen his paper on the subject in the new Proc Manchester list & Phil Soc, but the Committee would be glad to know from you whether you consider the writer likely to give a successful grant of an hours talk.'
