TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Dr [Edmund Beecher] Wilson
Date4 February 1909
Description'Dear Dr Wilson,
Owing to my absence for a week in the month I have not been able to reply to your letter of 27 January.
The question you proposed as to the custody of your original drawings is one regarding which I should to consult my brother officers here, if not the Council - my own inclination is to think that on the whole the drawings would be more appropriately kept at the Geological Society. But I will write to you later on this matter.'
