Robert Harkness (1816-1878) wrote to Geikie regarding the geology of north-west England, and on matters relating to Sir Roderick Impey Murchison (1792-1871) as well as on other professional matters.
Letters from Sir Charles Augustus Hartley (1825-1915) largely concerned the discharge of rivers, particularly the Thames. Francis John Haverfield (1860-1919) sought Geikie's opinion on the influence of geology on the geographical location of London.
