DescriptionThe Royal Society intends to celebrate on the 16th and 18th July next the 250th anniversary of its foundation by Charles II. As the Society in its early days was closely connected with the City of London Geikie requests whether it would be possible to obtain use of the Guildhall on the evening of Tuesday, 16th July.
