Scope and Content

Letter to Sir John Scott Keltie from Capt Clarence Edward Dutton apologising that the advance atlas sheets for Tertiary History of the Grand Canyon District, (1882) have not been sent to him due to a hold up at the printer's. He reports that he will shortly leave for the Sandwich Islands (now Hawaii) but will leave instructions for them to be sent on. This may not be for another 2 weeks due to the scale of the print job. He tells Keltie that he hopes Sir Archibald Geikie will be able to review the work.
