TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Dr E A Wilson, Grantown on Spey
Date3 June 1908
DescriptionTheir letter with the proofs of letterpress and plates CV to CVII[?] came this morning. As regarding the maps, Geikie does not think he needs to aim for mathematical accuracy in the indications of the portions of the photographs and sketches. His explanation of presented as outlined is enough. Returning the sheet of letterpress, and if he could expedite the passage of these proofs through the press, it would be a great advantage. Has urged Oliver and Boyd to push on with the work.
