L'UNIVERSITE DE GENEVE A THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON FOR PROMOTING
NATURAL KNOWLEDGE. Le Recteur et le Senat de TUniversite de Geneve
nvoient leurs salutations au President et aux membres de la Royal Society of
London et leur expriment leurs plus vives felicitations a 1'occasion du glorieux
anniversaire celebre les 16, 17 et 18 Juillet. Nombreux sont les rapports qui
se sont etablis depuis 1'epoque de la Reformation entre les hommes de science
de la Grande Bretagne et de la Cite genevoise. Dans une adresse remarquable,
precieuse entre beaucoup, envoyee en 1909 a 1'Universite de Geneve, a 1'occasion
du jubile commemoratif de sa fondation, votre President rappelait les noms
de nos maitres qui ont figure sur la liste d'honneur de la Royal Society. Les
solennites du 250 e anniversaire de la fondation de votre Societe nous rappellent
deux noms de savants anglais qui nous sont chers : celui de Robert Boyle,
dont les grandes decouvertes sont precisement de 1'epoque ou votre illustre
Compagnie s'est constitute, et qui, peu de temps auparavant, passait comme
jeune etudiant deux annees a Geneve ; celui de Sir Humphry Davy qui, apres
avoir sejourne plus d'une fois dans notre ville, y decedait en 1829 et auquel
notre petite Republique, toujours jalouse des prerogatives de la haute culture,
fit des funerailles officielles. Ce souvenir s'est perpetue chez nous sous la
forme d'un prix universitaire qui porte le nom de Davy : recemment encore, la
vie de ce savant illustre etait donnee en exemple a nos etudiants dans une de nos
fetes academiques. II nous a paru utile d'evoquer ainsi le passe pour mieux
exprimer le caractere des liens qui unissent notre Universite a votre savante
Confrerie. Que la Royal Society continue a briller au premier rang des
societes scientifiques ! C'est le voeu tres sincere que forment le Recteur et le
Senat de TUniversite de Geneve.

L'UNIVERSITE DE LAUSANNE A LA SOCIETE ROYALE BRITANNIQUE. Monsieur
le President et Messieurs, Les circonstances ne nous ont pas permis de
repondre a votre appel et de vous envoyer un delegue. Mais nous tenons
a vous dire qu'en ces jours de fete nous prenons part a votre joie et que, en
vous presentant nos felicitations pour votre glorieux passe, nous faisons des vreux
pour votre avenir. Creee par le libre effort de quelques hommes avides de
penetrer les secrets de la Science, la Societe Royale a recu, voici deux cent
cinquante ans, sa premiere charte du roi d'Angleterre Charles II. Tot apres,
elle attirait, par ses lettres et ses publications, Tattention de tons les savants et
philosophes du continent. Elle n'a, dans la suite, plus cesse de croitre :
reunissant des materiaux scientifiques, enrichissant sans relache son admirable
bibliotheque, donnant le desir et le pouvoir de vivre a d'autres societes, ses
sreurs cadettes du Royaume Uni, groupant, a chaque generation, des
hommes toujours nouveaux, chercheurs modestes ou initiateurs illustres, qui
prirent part a ses travaux ou, tel le grand Newton, presiderent ses seances.
Aujourd'hui la Societe Royale est plus puissante, plus active que jamais ; elle
rend des services a Phumanite entiere ; il n'est personne, dans le monde de la
culture, qui ne connaisse et respecte son nom. Nous nous joignons a ceux qui
1'admirent et, avec tant d'autres, nous lui exprimons notre reconnaissance.

JAPAN

IMPERIAL UNIVERSITY, TOKYO

ADDRESS OF CONGRATULATION FROM THE IMPERIAL UNIVERSITY OF TOKYO TO
THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. (Translation.) The Imperial University of
Tokyo is much honoured in being invited by the Royal Society of London to
participate in the celebration of the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of
its foundation, and is delighted to join with other Universities and Learned
Societies in tendering most hearty congratulations on this memorable occasion.
So marvellous has been the progress of Science during the last two and a half
centuries, and so illustrious the history of the Royal Society, its foremost
promoter, that we cannot, in this short address, refer in adequate terms to
any of the individual work of its Fellows, however important that work may
be. We can but gratefully recall the fact that the two fundamental laws of
Nature the law of universal attraction and the law of evolution were both
brought to light by the Fellows of the Royal Society, one of whom held the
office of President for the long period of twenty-four years and is, probably,
the greatest man of science the world has ever produced. We would rather
signalize the profound influence which the Royal Society has had upon man's
thought. By steadfastly pursuing the great and noble object with which it
was founded, the Royal Society has not only enlarged the bounds of man's
knowledge and increased his power and happiness to an extent almost beyond
words, but has also, especially during the last half-century, broken down
inherited prejudices and traditional opinions, established freer and more
direct methods of reasoning, and altogether raised the standard and widened
the sphere of man's thought. And, immense as are the material benefits
which Science has conferred upon mankind, this greater intellectual freedom



CELEBRATION ADDRESSES 71

and this wider range of thought, which have chiefly followed from the work
of the Royal Society, are certainly not of less price. Moreover, when we
remember that the bringing in of this liberal mental attitude has been of
immense service in remodelling the civilization of Japan within the last fifty
years, we feel that no words can adequately express our deep sense of
gratitude. If, on this occasion of world-wide significance, we are allowed to
refer to another matter, which still more directly concerns the Imperial
University of Tokyo, we would gratefully record the valuable assistance
rendered to us in past days by several, who have since become Fellows of the
Royal Society, in fostering the spirit of scientific investigation in this country.
We must not omit to express our grateful thanks also for the active part
taken by the Royal Society in initiating and organizing the International
Catalogue of Scientific Literature and the International Association of
Academies. Such international organizations are not only of great impor-
tance for the primary objects with which they have been established, but will
also be a powerful means of promoting the brotherhood of mankind. In
conclusion, the Imperial University of Tokyo tenders its most hearty good
wishes for the prosperity of the Royal Society and hopes that in the future, as
in the past, it may lead the world in ' The Promotion of Natural Knowledge \
On behalf of the Imperial University of Tokyo.

BARON ARATA HAMAO, President.

To THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON FOR IMPROVING NATURAL KNOWLEDGE,
GREETINGS FROM THE IMPERIAL UNIVERSITY OF KYOTO. The progress of the
world is due to the development of science and art. Especially has the advance-
ment of the physical sciences been a predominant factor in producing the
increased welfare of humanity. The philosophy, the literature, and the Arts
of every age are the flowers of its endeavour ; but it is always the advance-
ment of the physical sciences that increases our knowledge of nature and
points the way to its exploitation, thus substantially promoting the well-
being of mankind. Great Britain has produced many scholars remarkable in
different spheres of human learning ; but those who are distinguished in the
physical sciences are especially numerous. This is due in part to the
innate character of the English people who particularly love positive and
practical knowledge ; yet more especially is it due to those varied means for
promoting and encouraging scientific research in which Great Britain abounds.
The Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge was estab-
lished with the approval of Charles II, and incorporated in sixteen hundred



72

and sixty-two. It is the oldest scientific association in Great Britain, and
one of the oldest in the world. Among its fellows are included those of the
greatest scientific eminence in Great Britain; and by their indefatigable
activity in the realm of natural science and by their keen counsel, the Society
has wonderfully fulfilled its purpose. The institution, by the Society, of the
annual grants for the promotion of scientific research, and of awards of
various medals to those making important discoveries, has been of great
service to the progress of knowledge in physical sciences. The publications of
the Society are among the most useful agencies for encouraging and dis-
seminating scientific information throughout the world ; and by them Japan
has been greatly benefited. The Imperial University of Kyoto appreciates
highly the Society's cordial invitation to participate in the celebration of its
two hundred and fiftieth anniversary, and herewith commissions her repre-
sentative to attend the ceremony, paying honour to the Society's glorious past
and praying for its still more glorious future.

Neque enim fieri poterat quin series ilia mirabilis rerum inventarum per
quas toti generi humane non solum via et ratio naturam complectendi sed
etiam vitae condicio cotidianae tantum in melius mutata esset, nos quoque
penitus commoveret. Nam si primam memoriam ordinis vestri repetere libet
et recordari quam longe aliter de specie et ratione naturae illo atque hoc
tempore vulgo senserint, difficile est eis satis digne gratias agere qui ingeniis
studiisque effecerunt ut hodie et qualia sint foedera naturae tanto subtilius
intellegamus et qualis necessitudo inter hominem ipsum et universam naturam
intercedat tanto liberius iudicemus. Longum est nee vero hoc loco necesse
eminent enim omnibusque qui sapiunt in ore sunt eos recensere paene innu-
merabiles qui vestrae Societatis sodales se in caecas veri latebras insinuave-
runt atque inde victores quid fieri posset, quid nequiret rettulerunt. Duo
autem, Carolus Lyell et Carolus Darwin, summo ingenio praestantes, nullius,
ut vobis moris est, addicti iurare in verba magistri, rerum cognoscere causas
tarn feliciter potuerunt ut si quis reperta eorum praetermittere velit, nullo iam
modo neque de hoc orbe terrae neque de vi et natura animantium neque de
ipsa omnium hominum consortione quicquam recte cogitare queat. Hi et tot
alii ex ordine vestro illustrissimo vitam humanam per inventas artes excolue-
runt omnesque sui memores iure fecerunt merendo. Namque eos, ut ait
Lucretius divinus ille poeta,
