Dr. John Dyneley Prince, American Minister to Denmark, delivered a lecture in Copenhagen before the Jewish Literary Society on the life and public services of Judah P. Benjamin, according to information received by Dr. Cyrus Adler, President of Dropsie College here. There were about 200 persons present including Dr. Simonsen, whose jubilee had been recently celebrated. Dr. Simonsen later presented to Professor Prince a copy of the Festkrift issued on that occasion.

Professor Prince was for many years a member of the Columbia University Faculty and has written important works in the field of oriental and philological science.
