TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to The Under Secretary of State, Colonial Office, S.W.
Date29 October 1908
DescriptionIn response to Mr Antrobus' letter of 28 October, the Royal Society regrets that it does not have the funds available to bear the cost of supplying a seismograph to be set up in Antigua. As stated in Geikie's letter to the Earl of Crewe, the price of the instrument is about £75 and its installation can be made at a trifling expense, so that the cost to the Colony would probably not exceed £100.
