held on Tuesday evening, June 9th, Mr. James Barnard, Vice-President,
in the chair. A large number of Fellows were present, as well as several
ladies. The following gentlemen, who had been previously nominated
by the Council, were balloted for and declared duly elected Fellows of
the Society, viz., Messrs. Alexander Macdonald Ritchie and T. B. Moore.

of announcing the receipt of certain pecuniary bequests by the late Dr.

those bequests Dr. Milligan had also made certain gifts of land, comprising
three allotments of one acre each at Bicheno, and one town
allotment of three acres at George. Includes additions to the Library, presentations to the museum.
