Jukes referred to communications he had had with colleagues, such as Sir Andrew Crombie Ramsay (1814-1891), Sir Roderick Impey Murchison (1792-1871) and, fellow member of the Irish survey, Joseph O'Kelly (1832-1883). He also provided a suggested route for Geikie to follow during a visit to France and neighbouring countries in 1867, commenting on many geological features.
Specific geological topics are also referred to, such as different types of rocks, glacial drift (comparing Scotland and Ireland) and volcanic activity. He commented on specific aspects of the geology of the area around Edinburgh.
After Jukes' death, his wife, Georgina Augusta Jukes, wrote to Geikie concerning work to be done in Ireland, problems associated with it and an offer made to her by Geikie.
