LettreGeorge Howard Darwin à Henri Poincaré, 06 février 1900

3-15-8. George Howard Darwin to H. Poincaré

6 Feb. 1900

Newnham Grange—Cambridge

Dear Monsieur Poincaré,

I find that I was wrong in describing the dinner on Friday as a dinner of the Society — it is a dinner of the Astronomical Club, and it is quite small & informal.11The dinner invitation was extended to Poincaré by Darwin (§ 3-15-5) in connection with the Gold Medal awarded him by the Royal Astronomical Society. For Darwin’s award-ceremony speech, see Darwin (1900). We do not even put on “Cravate blanche”. Nevertheless there are speeches (I am sorry to say) — for we English do not seem able to eat our dinners without speechifying. I hope the weather may be less abominable by Friday than it is now.

Yours very Sincerely

G. H. Darwin
