Anglo-American Reunion. International Response to the Appeal for Arbitration
War, Internationalism, Scientific Practitioners, Astronomy
Reprints several letters from well-known supporters of the attempts at arbitration to prevent a war between Britain and America, including one from J Norman Lockyer who states that 'All Englishmen of Science, especially of Astronomical Science, are united by the closest ties of sympathy with their more than cousins across the Atlantic. We have the same aims, and we work together. I have the honour of including among my friends on the other side such earnest workers as Langley, Holden, Young and many others I might name, and I am certain they feel as I do that war is unthinkable as between two members of the same family' (262).
