About the middle of July, 1877, I had an opportunity of
paying a visit to the thermal spring, near Southport, discovered
not very many years ago by some splitters who were at
work in the neighbourhood. Mr. Graves, who accompanied
me, and who had kindly made all necessary arrangements
for the expedition, had once previously visited the spot; and
his general local knowledge was of great service in enabling
us to find it without much difficulty.

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.
