Abstract OF Annual Report.
During the session seven ordinary meetings have been held, at which nineteen papers were read. In addition, two popular scientific lectures were delivered by Captain Hutton and Professor Dendy. The number of members is the same as last year—viz., sixty-five—and the number of associates is seventy-nine. The photographic section is in a flourishing condition, and held a successful exhibition of photographs during the year.
The balance-sheet shows the total receipts to have been £69, and the expenditure £85 18s. 6d. This, with £41 10s. 11d. brought forward from last year, leaves the institute with a credit balance of £24 12s. 5d.
It is proposed, during the ensuing year, to make the ordinary meetings more interesting by microscopical exhibitions and short addresses.
The report of the photographic section was read and adopted.
