TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 May 1914
DescriptionProfessor [Arthur] Schuster has asked to write regarding a meeting of the Seismology Committee, of which Geikie is Chairman. He thinks the Committee ought to meet to discuss the arrangements of the St Petersburg Seismological Conference this year, and also consider the arrangements for the continuance of [John] Milne's observations, and generally as to permanent arrangements for a seismological organization. If Geikie would let Harrison know what days and times would suit him best for a meeting, he can arrange summonses.
