Date5 March 1923
DescriptionInforms Mr. A. C. C. Parkinson that Sir Gerald [Ponsonby] Lenox-Conyngham has expressed a reluctance to attend the Pan (Pacific) Congress in Australia unless a definite advantage to geodesy is assured. Suggests that a cable is sent to Professor Sir Edgeworth David, Professor of Zoology at the University of Cambridge, asking him to confirm the value of sending a geodist to the Congress or, alternatively, that Sir Charles [Frederick Arden] Close is asked to attend instead.
