HARVARD NAT. HIST. SOC.

AT a fully attended meeting of the Society, held at their rooms last Tuesday night, it was determined to request scientific communications from the Professors of the University, and that, furthermore, notice should be placed upon the college buildings, in advance, of those who would speak at each meeting, with, if possible, the subject of each lecture. This should be done, in order that members interested in different branches of Natural History could be informed of meetings at which their specialties would be discussed.

A committee was appointed to request from the University Library the gift of any scientific works of which they had duplicates. After the transaction of a large amount of business, and determining upon many plans for the future advancement of the Society, the meeting adjourned.
