Date10 August 1915
Description'The Smithsonian Onstitution ask for permission to reprint your obituary notice of Prof Gaskill in their Annual Report of the Board of Regents for 1915. They also ask if they may print your name in full at the end instead of your initials only.
I have replied saying that the Royal Society offers no objection but that your sanction must be obtained. Would you mind sending a note direct to the Secretary, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, USA, in order to save time.'
