Abstract

My attention has been called to some fossils in the Museum of the Society, which are alleged to have been collected close to the sea-side at Table Cape. They were presented to the Society by Dr. Milligan, and consist of remains taken, as far as I can judge, from three different deposits. In perusing the transactions of your Society, I do not find that an attempt has yet been made to determine the relations of these beds to similar deposits in Australia. Neither can I learn that a classification of the imbedded remains has been attempted. The following observations on the subject may, therefore, be of some little value.
