In continuation of the short paper read, last year on the
works then in operation at Cascades, Hobart, and at Tarleton,
I now lay before the Society the records of boring with the
diamond drills, together with a few remarks on the results.
I have, on several occasions, pointed out the extreme improbability
of the discovery of coal in either locality, but
there were many who held a different opinion, and it was
well that the question should be set at rest. -- Part one of this article is at http://eprints.utas.edu.au/15590

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.
