Will you do the favor to attend a meeting of the Committee of Arrangements for the Eighth International Geographic Congress to be held In the home of the American Geographical Society. 15 west 81 Street, New York, at ten oclock on Monday, June 6.
The chief business of the meeting will be the confederation of final arrangements, committee reports, the appointment of officers and committees on recommendation of the cooperating societies, and the preparation of the formal announcement to he issued In June.
Communications from members not present In person will receive full consideration; yet it is hoped that, since this will probably be the last Important meeting of the Committee In advance of the assembling of the Congress, so many as practicable of the representatives of the cooperating societies will be In attendance.
With great respect,
Mr. John Muir,
President Sierra Club,
St. Louis, Mo.
