Abstract

Upon the occasion of a former visit to Van Diemen's Land
some few years ago, and during various excursions then taken
through the country, I made a large collection of Geological
Specimens and returning afterwards to England, I
presented a selection, of what I considered the most valuable
portions of them, to Mr. Thomas Winsmore Wilson,
of Barnsley, Yorkshire, a practical geologist of great repute,
and this gentleman kindly furnished me with a minute
description of each specimen. Most of Mr. Wilson's remarks are so well worthy of notice
here, and particularly so as showing forth the mineral
wealth of this Island, that I have much pleasure in the
opportunity now afforded me of laying them before the
Members of this Society, for the benefit of the community
at large.
