Abstract

His Excellency the Governor, as President,
delivered the following presidential
address : —
Mr. Vice - President, members of
the Council, and Fellows of the
Royal Society, — Among the many
honourable and agreeable positions
held by the Governor of Tasmania, there
is none more honourable, none more agreeable,
than that of President of the Royal
Society of Tasmania. Not only can the
Royal Society claim to be one of the oldest
scientific bodies of Australasia, but it may
also justly pride itself on having contributed
largely to the stores of science and
research' which have been laid up in this
great Southern Dominion. Includes portrait of Arthur Elibank Havelock
