The usual monthly meeting of the society was held on Monday, the 13th
September. M. Allport, Esq., V.P., in the chair.
-J. R. Scott, Esq., M L.C. read an account of a visit made by him to
Port Davey in March last. This exceedingly interesting paper was listened
to with marked attention. It was illustrated by sketches of the local
scenery, the "piners" huts or "Badger Boxes," etc., and also by a large
and very well executed chart of Port Davey and the surrounding country,
drawn by Mr. Scott himself, partly from personal survey, and in part
from the Government map of the country.
-The Rev. Julian Woods drew attention to some remarks made by
him at the previous meeting with reference to certain flint implements,
and the antiquity of cave remains.
