I wish to lay before the Royal Society, an account of an
accident which recently occurred to a friend of mine while
handling a Platypus, as there are circumstances connected
with it, which are rather singular in their nature, and I
think worthy of your attention. The friend I allude to
is Mr. Augustas Simson, a member of this Society, who is now
residing in Gould's Country.

In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.
