(Sir Arrhur Havelock) presided.
Includes: papers by Mr. Kingsmill and Colonel Legge in relation to "Rainfall and water supply of the Great Lake". A paper entitled: "Agronomy in Relation to Science",

he advocated a systematic nomenclature
of our fruits, notably apples and pears.Mr. R.M Johnston read a paper on "Flowering plants at Kettering", in which no less than 130 species were described, and Mr. Morton thought it would be the first of many lists of local plants the society would receive and teachers of schools might prepare lists with great advantage.
