Abstract

The Fellows of the Royal Society of
Tasmania opened their session for 1905,
being the 62nd, at their rooms, on Tuesday,
April 11, 1905. His Excellency the
Governor, Sir Gerald Strickland,
K.C.M.G., President of the Society (accompanied
by Lady Edeline Strickland,
Miss Drummond, and suite), presided. Meeting opened with an Address of Welcome by Mr. A.G. Webster, Chairman of the Council addressing His Excellency.His Excellency the Governor delivered a Presidential Address:- "Mr. Chairman, Members of the Council,
and Fellows of the Royal Society,
The honour of addressing this Society as
its president ex-officio is, at the same time,
amongst the most pleasant and the most
arduous of the duties devolving on the
Governor of this Slate; it has been forcibly
brought to my notice that the Royal
Society of Tasmania is the senior Royal
Society established in the Southern Hemisphere,
and the vigour with which the
point has been pressed has tempted me to
examine if this be a mere coincidence, or
the result of some relation of Cause and
Effect."
