The monthly evening meeting of the Society was held on Monday, the
8th November, His Excellency the Governor in the chair.
-Mr. M. Allport, in the absence of the hon. secretary, called attention to
the beautiful series of lithographs of the tertiary fossils from the north coast
of Tasmania, executed by Mrs. Meredith from her own original drawings,
and pointed out that the value of the Rev. Julian Woods' paper on these
fossils was materially enhanced by the skilful work of the talented artist.
-The Rev. J. E. Tenison Woods in introducing his paper "On some
new and hitherto undescribed Shells of Tasmania," remarked that his list
though a large one for novelties, where so much had been done, might
require considerable augmentation.
