Abstract

Observing in the Museum of the Royal Society of Tasmania
a valuable and not an inconsiderable collection of bird
skins from different countries, which will require, eventually,
to be mounted or set up in their natural attitudes, I think
it very desirable to lay before the Society the method of
relaxing such skins, as pursued by the best animal preservers
in Europe, and the efficiency of which I have repeatedly
proved.
