Abstract

After referring to an extract from a
letter to himself from Professor R. V. Lendenfeld, of the University
Czernowitz, relative to and agreeing with a previous paper on the
first proofs of land glaciations in Tasmania, the writer said that upon
examination of the banks of the King River, West Coast of Tasmania,
he had discovered large ice worn boulders, striated and grooved, in the deep gorge of the river situated at the upper landing, and also similar
glaciated boulders in Harvey's Creek, at a distance of a quarter of a
mile from its junction with the King River at the landing.
