Scope and Content

Letter to Sir Archibald Geikie from Capt Clarence Edward Dutton telling Geikie that he has declined the invitation from the journal Nature to review Geikie's forthcoming publications, as he will shortly be leaving for the Sandwich Islands (now Hawaii) to do field work in preparation for a systematic study of the volcanic fields of California and Oregon. He recommends his colleague Grove Karl Gilbert for the task and asks Geikie if he will review his new monograph Tertiary History of the Grand Canyon District, (1882)..
