Mr. G.J. DENNY exhibits nine Paintings, eight of which are Marine. As he did not enter the Paintings at the time established by the Board of Managers, he is, under that rule, precluded from all competition for premiums. A.S. HALLIDIE, Esq., President of Industrial Fairs, etc. DEAR SIR: Your letter of this date, informing the undersigned, Jurors of Class 16, Section 1, that the list furnished them erroneously excluded the Paintings of Mr. G.J. Denny, as not having been entered within the prescribed time, and requesting them to furnish the Board of Managers with a supplementary report of their judgement on said Paintings has been received. In pursuance of that request, the undersigned Jurors do hereby recommend the award of a Second Premium to Mr. G.J. Denny, for best display and excellence in Marine Painting. Awarded a Silver Medal.
