TO THE PRESIDENT, COUNCIL, AND FELLOWS
EDINBURGH GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY.
January 1, 1871. MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN,
Permit me, most respectfully, to inscribe to you the following pages, as a trifling acknowledgment of the honour you did me on December 22, 1864, by unanimously electing me a Fellow of your Society, and, more especially, of the further honour you conferred upon me on March 22, 1866, by admitting me “ to all the privileges of Life Membership,” which honor, I suppose, in the words of Cæsar, ante id tempus accidit nulli.
I have the honor to remain,
T. A. BLYTH.
