The seventh international geological congress

Joseph Paxson Iddings
The seventh international geological congress (in Recollections of a petrologist, Davis A. Young (editor))
Special Paper - Geological Society of America (May 2015) 512


Of the many forms of benefaction derived from one's friends and colleagues, that of candid praise is probably the most appreciated by the recipient, and is least likely to remain unrecognized or to pass out of recollection, especially when it is accompanied by some token of distinction. It acts as recompense for prolonged effort and continued work and as an incentive to further endeavor. Its value is not to be neglected in reckoning one's obligation to one's friends. It is in this spirit I recall the satisfaction received from a letter of Judd's in which he wrote: We are all very glad to be able to have your name enrolled among our foreign correspondents--though I do not deny that the pleasure was especially great in the case of Teall and myself, who have the pleasure of knowing you so well.
