Robert Brown1 to Faraday   Between 1848 to 1858

17 Dean St Soho | Tuesday Morn:

My dear Sir

I will look over your list of Academies &c with much pleasure & if you leave the insertion to me I will add such as I think ought to appear in the Royal Society’s list of wh[ich] however I have not yet received the proof for correction.

In inserting the Prussian Order I fear the inscription or title of the Order on the Decoration must stand as it is namely “pour le merite”2[.]

Ever most truly Yours | R. Brown

Robert Brown (1773–1858, ODNB). Keeper of Botany at the British Museum, 1827–1858.
This was first included in Faraday’s entry in the 1848 Royal Society list of Fellows.
