Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania was held in
the large room of the Art Gallery on Monday, November 25th, Sir
James Agnew presiding. There was a large attendance. Mr. L. Rodway read a paper "On some New Botanical Specimens." A paper from Mr. Weymouth on some New Mosses. Mr. J, B. Walker read a paper on " Abel Jansen Tasman :
His Life and Times." He said that for long Tasman was neglected by
his own countrymen, but at this late date a good deal of close
attention was being given to the existing records of his work. The Hon. Adye Douglas said the very admirable lecture they had
just listened to was the last of the session. Their thanks were due to
the vice-president, Sir James Agnew, and in moving that a vote of thanks
be accorded him he would add the name of Mr. Barnard. Sir James
Agnew and Mr. Barnard had belonged to the society for 54 years.
The vote of thanks was carried by acclamation, and the recipients
briefly responded.
The Chairman announced that the evening's meeting closed the
session for 1895. He was sure all would agree that many valuable
papers had been read and much exceedingly useful information had
been gathered and ventilated during the session of 1895.
The meeting then terminated.
