Date24 May 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
At Professor [George Henry Falkiner] Nuttall's request I enclose a copy of the arms of the Royal Society for your information. The use of arms was given to the Society in August, 1663, by Charles II, in the Second Charter granted by him to the Society. They consist of, a shield Argent, in a Canton Dexter the three Lions of England in pale; and for Crest a helm adorned with a crown studded with florets, surmounted by an eagle of proper colour holding in one foot a shield charged with the three Lions of England. The supporters are two white hounds gorged with crowns.'
