Froude, F.R.S., of his great and gratuitous services to the Navy in investigating and determining the proper form of ships and propellers; and, whether arrangements will be made for carrying on the laboratory in which Mr. Froude conducted his investigations?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
, in reply, said, he had written to the hon. Gentleman who had given Notice of the Question asking him to postpone it. He could only say, at the present moment, that he cordially reciprocated the expression of acknowledgment due to Mr. Froude for the great and eminent services he had rendered.
