TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to Dr [Charles] Chree
Date7 July 1909
Description'Dear Dr Chree,
Thanks fo your letter of yesterday, I hardly think anything will be gained by putting the map in hand at once. It is all drawn and ready for reproduction, which will be a simple and rapid process. Mr Shackleton has sent us the exact position of the S magnetic pole, and only he had any abjection, or might appear with the other two positions on our draft.
Before you take holidays it would help us on if you could kindly arrange to come here and [?] all pending arrangements with Mr White.'
