Letter from the Duke of Argyll, 16 April 1883

Identifier: Coll-43 ::: MS 2935.9

Scope and Contents

Letter from the Duke of Argyll wishing to decline the request from him to address the Edinburgh Geological Society on their 50th anniversary. As his time has been devoted more to literay work than geology over the last few years, he is unfamiliar with recent advances in the science and could not offer any thing of real use to the society, although he could talk on something more general.
