Fifth Meeting: 13th September, 1898.
A. Bathgate, Vice-president, in the chair.
New Member.—E. A. Petherick, London.
The Chairman mentioned that the third part of Mr. Hamilton's book on “Maori Art” had been published, and was now available for members and the public generally. All members of the Institute had the privilege of acquiring this handsome and valuable work at a reduced rate. The way in which the volume had been turned out by the publishers was a credit to the colony.
