JULY 31, 1911.
A special general meeting of the society was held at the
Museum at 8 p.m.
His Excellency Sir Harry Barron, K.C.M.G., presided.
The meeting was convened with the purpose of hearing a
lecture by Comte de Fleurieu, a member of the French Geographical
Society, on the early geography of Tasmania.
Comte de Fleurieu was disappointed to
find that none of the names so given had been retained, for example, Fleurieu Bay was now called Oyster Bay, Fleurieu Island was
Cape Barren Island, and when he went to Port Cygnet to see
the Fleurieu River of the old charts he found that it was called
the Agnes Rivulet.
