to The Photographic Society
April 1856, The
Photographic Society of Scotland was established. Its Treasurer sent
draft Laws of the Society to Dr. Hugh Diamond and to JR Major, editor of
the Journal of the Photographic Society, seeking their advice.
Major replied to the Photographic Society of Scotland,
inviting the society to contribute reports to the Photographic
beg to inform you that the Journal of the Photographic Society is open to the
Reports and Papers of kindred societies who have no organ of their own, and I
shall be happy to insert such reports if you will furnish me with them as well
as any communications (either in full or abstract) which may be read before your
Meetings, provided they be of sufficient importance and general interest.
such contribution I am sure we shall do much to advance the knowledge of
photography, and thus must plead my excuse for addressing you.
