TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie to [William Napier] Shaw
Date14 November 1912
Description'In reply to your letter of 12th let me say that I have not wished to importune you about that Preface to the final Meteorology Vlume, but I have been most currious to get the olume published this year. Is it too much to hope that you will be able [?] yhe next week or two to let me have your MS? Which I understood from you would make only a few pages of print. If you can, I would much rather wait and send Dr Simpson the whole book, text and plates.'
