TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, President of the Royal Society
Date18 July 1913
DescriptionGathers from a letter of his that the Oxford Press were to send proofs of the revised title page and index of the Anniversary Volume to his home. They arrived at the Royal Society this morning. Although they may be duplicates, it is best to send on the enclosed [no enclosures].

Has learnt that the boat that Sir David Bruce is travelling on is not likely to reach England before 26 July, so after consultation with Sir John [Rose] Bradford it is thought not worth changing the day fixed for the Tropical Diseases Committee meeting, unless Geikie wishes for the Wednesday instead.
