Date9 September 1899
DescriptionWhen Brown arrives at New Haven for the Centenary of the Connecticut Academy, he will find a copy of an address of the Royal Society.

Dr G M Dawson of Canada is the Society's other delegate and, being Brown's senior in the Society, would have taken charge of the address, but it not quite certain whether he can be present.

Asks Brown to explain to the Academy that because of the recess the seal of the Society cannot be attached to the address, but if the Academy send it back to the Society, the seal shall be attached.
