Abstract

A welcome, in tbe form of a conversazione, was given by
the Council of tbe Royal Society of Tasmania at the Town
Hall, on Wednesday evening, April 18, to Mr. Borchgrevink
and those who accompanied him on the recent Antarctic Expedition.
The attendance was large and fashionable, and amid
such a gathering it would be impossible to give anything like
an accurate list of names.
Owing to the indisposition
of his Excellency the Governor, the Chief Justice (Sir
John Dodds) presided.
Addresses of welcome were also presented
by the following bodies:—The
Marine Board of Hobart (by Captain
T. M. Fisher); Australian Natives'
Association (by Mr. A. J. Nettlefold).
