Date24 May 1909
Description'Dear Dr Gaskell,
The Society has been invited to send a delegate to the celebrations of the 500th Anniversary of the foundation of the University Leipzig, and I have been directed to ask if you would undertake the duty of representing the Society. The celebrations are to take place from July 28 to 30.
Would you kindly let me know your decision as soon as possible, because there has already been some delay on the part of the Council responding to the invitation.'
