Praises Frederick J Horniman for entrusting 'the treasures of his museum' to the public. Observes that he is 'not only a successful City man, but is devoted to scientific pursuits', in particular entomology and zoology. Science and commerce is 'a somewhat rare combination in these days when so many of our merchant princes are absorbed in the race for wealth'.
