TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Dr [Sidney Frederic] Harmer
Date4 February 1909
Description'Dear Dr Hamrer,
I have been Scotland for a week; hence the delay in this acknowledgement of your letter of 29th ult. I am sorry that you do not feel able at present to undertake the duties of Editor of "The Fauna of British India"; the Council sent to the India Officer a selection of names of which yours stood first. I presume that the India Office, having heard from you that you decline, will write to the next name on the list.'
