|10 January 1912
|'The PResident and Council at their meeting yesterday resolved that you should be asked if you would be willing to collaborate with Mr Francis Darwin, to whom a similar request is being made, in writing an obituary notice of Sir Joseph Hooker for publication in the PRoceedings [of the Royal Society]; and I shall be glad to know whether you will undertake this duty.
I am also directed to ask if you would yourself be so good as to undertake an obituary notice of Mr Bornet, Foreign Member, whose death was reported to the President and Council yesterday.'
