Excerpt from Scottish Geographical Magazine, 1899, Vol. 15 Now, the distance between Tokyo and Potsdam is 5110 miles measured along the chord, and 5560 miles measured along the arc. Assuming then that the origin of the earthquake was not very far distant from Tokyo, we find that certain tremors started by the earthquake must have travelled at a rate of 400 miles per minute, or nearly seven miles per second; that the vibrations which produced the maximum motion travelled at the rate of 110 miles per minute, or nearly two miles per second; while the most slowly moving disturbances attained an average speed of only 34 miles per minute, or fully half a mile per second.

Excerpt from Scottish Geographical Magazine, 1890, Vol. 6 When the Royal Scottish Geographical Society recently did me the honour of inviting me to give their Anniversary Address, my first impulse was to express gratification at their generous thought, but respectfully to decline an office for which I felt myself to be in many respects ill qualified. When, however, I was reminded that the subject selected by your Council was that of Africa, and that the accidents of my service under Government had. Brought me into many direct and indirect relations with the East Coast of that continent, I reflected that, although I had no pretensions to figure as a geographer before so cultivated and scientific an audience as that which I should have to encounter in the great centres of Scottish life, yet I might perhaps be able to put together some facts bearing on the present position of British interests in Africa, which, being in the nature of geography applied to practical purposes, would present an ensemble such as might enable students to correlate and lend some semblance of unity to the variety of disconnected African allusions and narratives with which the press at the present time daily teems. Nor was I quite Without hope that remarks published from this hall might prove of some practical utility to those earnest workers, philanthropic societies, and politico-commercial companies who are expending such vast sums of money and such strenuous endeavours with the object of Spreading light, liberty, civilisation, and Christianity among the hitherto suffering descendants of Ham.
