This is a fortunate circumstance, of which tbe Institute is proud; and which it has enjoyed on several occasions. In this it only imitates the example set by several English Sçavans, and particularly by Sir Joseph Banks, even during the most critical periods of the French Revolution. Nine years afterwards, on the publication of the “Oriental Memoirs," the honourable Author has brought to the recollection of the Institute the testimonies of esteem and interest which he had received from it, on the occasion above alluded to.Paris, Nov. 10, 1814.%.

+ Mrs. Southby was a Miss Aspinal; she died in 1806. With her father Mr. Wogan was, in some way or other, connected in a banking-concern. Mr. A. failed, and involved Mr. W. in a considerable sum of money. His regard for the family, however, caused him, at his own cost, to fit out, in a very handsome manner, for India, the three Misses Aspinal, daughters of his unfortunate friend. These Ladies all married extremely well in India; at Madras, I believe. One married Mr. Bouthby, another Mr. Prince, and a third the late Sir Thomas Rumbold, Governor of Madras. Mrs. Southby's daughter married a mear relation of the celebrated Mrs. Montague.
