ASHMOLEAN NATURAL HlSTORY SOCIETY OF OXFORDSHIRE

THE ASHMOLEAN NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY OF OXFORDSHIRE sends heartiest
congratulations to the Royal Society on the celebration of the 250th
Anniversary of its foundation. It begs to express its profound admiration
for the great part the Royal Society has played in the extensive development
of Natural Knowledge, and in the enormous advancement of the beneficial and
industrial Arts, during those 250 years, and thanks the Royal Society for
the stimulus and encouragement it has always afforded to other Societies,
throughout the Empire, by its splendid example in the field of research. For
these reasons the Ashmolean Natural History Society of Oxfordshire, thus
named in memory of Elias Ashmole, one of the earliest Fellows of the Royal
Society, desires herewith to offer its humble homage and greeting.

ARTHUR A. RAMBAUT, President and Delegate.



To THE PRESIDENT, COUNCIL, AND MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY. THE
PRESIDENT AND COUNCIL OF THE SOCIETY OF CHEMICAL INDUSTRY offer to the
Royal Society their most hearty congratulations on the attainment of the two
hundred and fiftieth Anniversary of its foundation and have nominated to

i 2



116 THE ROYAL SOCIETY

represent them on this happy occasion RUDOLPH MESSEL, their President. At
no time in the history of experimental science has there been any hard and fast
line dividing science from its applications, and the President and Council of
the Society of Chemical Industry recognize with pride that among the Fellows
of the Royal Society have been found some of the most brilliant examples the
world has seen of the genius which, while it seeks and grasps the highest
generalizations, is at the same time intensely alive to the applications of
science in arts and manufactures. As the oldest chartered scientific society in
this country and the mother of many daughter societies, the Royal Society
rouses the sympathy and admiration of all followers of applied science
throughout the world. The Society of Chemical Industry cannot forget that
it owed much of its early success to the timely support of Fellows of the Royal
Society : the Right Honourable Sir Henry Roscoe, its first President ; Sir
Frederick Abel, Sir Lowthian Bell, Sir William Perkin, Sir William Siemens,
Dr. Angus Smith, Mr. Walter Weldon, Prof. A. W. Williamson, and Dr.
James Young, its first Vice-Presidents ; and Capt. W. de W. Abney, Sir
William Crookes, Dr. Peter Griess, and Dr. Hermann Sprengel, Members of its
first Council. When the Society of Chemical Industry opened its doors to men
of every country and every race, the Royal Society at once welcomed this
manifestation of the brotherhood of Science, and marked its appreciation of the
great importance of such international exchanges of courtesy and scientific
opinion by the new departure of a reception to the Society and its members
who had come across the sea. In industrial production the gain of one nation
may be the loss of another, but the victories of science stand alone in that
there is no enemy to vanquish but ignorance, and its conquests are for the gain
and enrichment of the whole human race. The increased power over nature
won by the work of Davy and Faraday, of Rumford, and of Rutherford gives
no exclusive gain to any one country. The Royal Society and the Society
of Chemical Industry have a common object in improving and increasing
natural knowledge, and the future condition of mankind, both intellectually
and materially, depends upon the growth and activity of scientific Societies.
The organized and systematic application of science to industry is still far
from complete. The Society of Chemical Industry looks to the Royal Society
to continue to bestow upon its work the interest and encouragement which
have been so fully granted in the past. In wishing for the Royal Society
continued and increasing prosperity, the President and Council trust that the
cordial relations existing between the Societies may be maintained and result
in a more extended co-operation.

RUDOLPH MESSEL, President.
THOMAS TYRER, Treasurer.
CHAELES G. CRESSWELL, Secretary.

CELEBKATION ADDRESSES 119



ROYAL SOCIETY OF EDINBURGH

To THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. THE PRESIDENT AND FELLOWS OF THE
ROYAL SOCIETY OF EDINBURGH desire to offer their congratulations to the
Royal Society of London upon the attainment of the two hundred and
fiftieth Anniversary of its foundation. Founded for the purpose of ' further
promoting by the authority of experiments the science of natural things and
of useful arts', the Royal Society of London has with increasing zeal and
power continued to fulfil its high calling, and commands in the world of
scientific endeavour a position peculiarly its own. The Royal Society of
Edinburgh recalls with pride and satisfaction that since its own foundation in
1783 there has always existed between the two Societies a close association,
based not only on community of aim and interests, but in great measure
also upon community of membership. Scientific men of eminence have served
on the Councils, and contributed to the publications", of both Societies ;
and each Society can claim the late Lord Kelvin as one of the most renowned
of its Presidents. At this time the personal connexion is happily exemplified
by the fact that the distinguished President of the Royal Society of London
has been a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh for fully half a century.
May the important work which the Royal Society of London has achieved
in the past be continued and extended, during many centuries to come, to
the furtherance of natural knowledge and the progress of humanity.

WM. TURNER, President.

C. G. KNOTT, Secretary.

ROYAL PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY OF GLASGOW

THE ROYAL PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY OF GLASGOW TO THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF
LONDON FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF NATURAL KNOWLEDGE. We, the Members
of the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow, desire to express our gratifica-
tion at the courteous invitation to take part in celebrating the two hundred
and fiftieth Anniversary of the foundation of the Royal Society of London,
and our heartiest congratulations on the uninterrupted and pre-eminently
fruitful activity of the Society over a period of such duration. Scientific
Societies and Learned Bodies of all nations are bound and indebted in many
ways to the Royal Society ; for leadership in scientific thought, for encour-
agement of research, and for an unsparing hand in the dissemination of
knowledge. Since its inception the history of the progress of the Royal
Society has been largely the history of the advancement of science : the long



120 THE ROYAL SOCIETY

Roll of its Fellows bears the names of almost all the illustrious men of two
and a half centuries. Many of these we can recall whose names have adorned
our own Roll, and we cherish with peculiar satisfaction the recollection that
the late Lord Kelvin, during wellnigh sixty years, gave liberally of the
offspring of his great genius to forward the interests of both societies. We
also recall with pride that on the celebration of the Centenary of our Society
in 1902 we were honoured by a cordial greeting from the Royal Society the
Mother and the Model of all the learned societies in the English-speaking
world. It is our earnest hope that the Royal Society may long continue,
with ever fresh ardour and increasing power, to carry on its great work for
the advancement of knowledge.

Signed on behalf of the Members of the Royal Philosophical Society of
Glasgow, this second day of July., Nineteen hundred and twelve.

JOHN GLAISTER, President.

ROYAL DUBLIN SOCIETY

THE ROYAL DUBLIN SOCIETY TO THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON Greeting.
The President and Council of the ROYAL DUBLIN SOCIETY heartily join in
congratulating the Royal Society of London on the attainment of the two
hundred and fiftieth Anniversary of its foundation. Great has been the
progress of science since the Society under Royal auspices undertook the task
of improving natural knowledge, and the Fellows may well look with pride
upon the conspicuous part they have taken in winning from Nature her well-
guarded secrets. We earnestly hope that the Royal Society may continue its
beneficent labours with increasing success, ever widening the bounds of know-
ledge and extending man's control over Nature.

Given under our Common Seal at Leinster House* Dublin, this first day of
August, 1912.

HOWARD GRUBB, Vice-President.



QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY OF BELFAST

To THE PRESIDENT AND FELLOWS OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. WE,
THE CHANCELLOR AND MEMBERS OF THE QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY OF BELFAST, desire
to convey our congratulations on the occasion of this your Fifth Jubilee, and,
with our elders in learning, to acknowledge the blessings which your example
and generous endeavour have bestowed upon the commonwealth of Science.
The Virtuosi of Gresham College planned with confidence in their purpose and
in their successors. Within five years the poet's compliment that your Society
was ' worthy a history ' found proof in the memorable record of your first
efforts 'to increase the Powers of all Mankind'. At this remove it is our
privilege to do honour to a great tradition, and to see in that tradition less
the pride of accomplishment than the continuing promise of ' ransom to the
mind of man '.

Signed in name of the University, on the fifteenth day of July , one thousand
nine hundred and twelve.

SHAFTESBURY, Chancellor.
