Abstract

The monthly evening meeting was held on Monday evening, August
19th, the President, His Excellency Sir Robert G. C. Hamilton, K.C.B.,
in the chair.
The President said : Gentlemen, before we proceed to business
to-night I would remark that since our last meeting this Society
has suffered the loss of a very old member who had been, I understand,
21 years a member of the Council—Mr. Justin McC. Browne. I am sure
we should wish to place on record our great regret at his death, and
our heartfelt sympathy with those he has left behind. The Secretary (Mr. Alex. Morton) stated that since the last meeting,
at which the question of the height of some of the tallest Tasmanian
trees had been discussed, he had been making inquiries by circular
on the subject and had received some replies of value thereon. He
intended to have a paper on the subject at a future meeting or the
Society.
The Secretary of the Royal Society stated at its last meeting that he
had written to Mr. James Smith, Westwood, mentioned in the discussion
which took place at the May meeting, on a paper on this subject,
and that gentleman had furnished an extensive reply in regard to Angora goats which was then read by the secretary.
