|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, President of the Royal Society|
|Date||28 July 1913|
|Description||Geikie's letter reached Harrison this morning, and shortly afterwards he had a visit from the Surgeon General - [Sir David] Bruce, who reached England on Saturday. He seems well, and energetic as usual, and if Geikie comes on Thursday he will see him.|
Nobody has taken any exception to Geikie's choice of the red cover for the Anniversary Volume, and it will now be sent off to Oxford.
Professor [Arthur] Schuster looked in on Saturday and has now gone abroad. Among the papers shown to Schuster was a letter which came a short time ago from the Treasury asking the Council to nominate a member of the International Geodetic Association in the place of Sir George Darwin. It is a matter for the next Council meeting. Schuster is under the impression that before his death intended Sir [David] Gill should suceed him in this capacity, and Schuster thinks this would be a very suitable appointment.
