[2 pages of German]

This unintentionally amusing literal translation into barbaric English was done by a member of our Society at the time—it can be found on the last page of the document. One can only hope fellow members restrained him from responding to Dr. Foerster in German of a similar quality.—RR

Berlin, 27th July 1891

The undersigned director of the Royal Observatory of Berlin acknowledges with best thanks the receipt of the first number of your transactions with report of the year 1890/1.

Riverside, Cal. June 6, 1891.

G. E. Lumsden Esq.:

Dear Sir,—

Accept thanks for your favor of May 27, with the first annual Report. On p. 29, I notice what I suppose to be a typographical error.

On the 8th l. from the bottom for for Jupiter read Neptune, and on the 5th l. from bottom for axis read axial. It is not important, hoever, and need scarcely be noticed.

With much interest in the Society, I remain

Yours very truly

Daniel Kirkwood.
