Abstract

Includes list of corresponding members, List of Fellows, obituaries and minutes of the Annual General Meeting of the
Royal Society of Tasmania, held at the Museum,
Macquarie Street, at half-past seven p.m. on Monday,
25th January, 1881 ; James Barnard, Esq., V.P., in
the Chair. Includes report on the Societies finances. Report on gardens, including donors of plants and seeds and includes a list of plants introduced to the gardens during the year. Report on the Museum, list of donors to the museum, and books and periodicals purchased and presented to the Society during the year
It must be mentioned with extreme regret that the
obituary for the year embraces the names of some of the
oldest members. Archdeacon Davies was one of the
founders of the Society, and always took the liveliest
interest in its affairs ; whilst the names of Sir J. M. Wilson,
Mr. Charles Meredith, Mr. P. T. Smith, and Mr. Thomas
Giblin indicate the loss the Society has sustained by their
death.
The Council also regret to report that, owing to failing
health, Mr. Abbott has been obliged to discontinue those
meteorological observations which during the long period
of thirty years he has conducted with so much credit to
himself and advantage to the Society.
