My dear Sir

      Your letter of January 12 announcing my election as an Honourary Member of the Astronomical and Physical Society of Toronto is duly received. Please convey to the Society my sincere thanks for this honour.

      In answer to your questions my full name is edward Charles Pickering. My own preference would be for the omission of all letters after my name, but if you wish to add any, I presume that LL.D. will be sufficient with the title Director of Harvard College Observatory.

Yours very truly

Edward C. Pickering

G.E. Lumsden Esq.
Cor. Secy Astron. and Physical Soc.
