“This address was to have been delivered to the Society at its Anniversary Meeting, on the first Wednesday in May 1853; but, owing to the indisposition of the Author, could not be pronounced, and has therefore been published for the use of the Society.”
“A glance at the proceeding pages will show that the society had been in constant activity for the last three years and that there has been a regular production of observations highly creditable to the industry and the science of our members. It will also show that the Museum has been regularly enriched with important contributions.
For some years back, an instrumental society for the cultivation of Natural History has existed among students at the University of Cambridge. This association has regular meetings and has done much to implant a taste for natural science in the minds of young gentlemen. “
