G.E. Lumsden Esq.
May I ask you to convey to the Astronomical + Physical Society of Toronto my high appreciation of the honour they have conferred upon me in electing me an Honorary Member, and the assurance of the pleasure which it gives me to be associated with a Society which, I am sure, has a great future before it, and will undoubtedly contribute much to the study of Astronomy in Canada.
