TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 June 1912
DescriptionHarrison has his letter and with Mr Lindley's assistance[?] carried out the amendments on the current list of delegates. It is well it was kept open to the last minute as replies have been received from foreign institutions, and Prince Arthur of Connaught. A letter from the Netherlands[?] minister has arrived regarding making an exception for a foreign journalist. This will be difficult. Had a letter from [Morris William] Travers regarding representing the Indian Institute of Science at the Anniversary celebrations. Although this is a new institution, it takes precedence over some others.
