Foster, Prof. Rolleston, Mr. Dew-Smith (Secretary), Prof. Huxley, Dr. Carpenter, Dr. Gwyn Jeffreys, Mr. Sclater, Mr. F. M. Balfour, Sir C.

From September 1, 1878, to the end of July, 1879, twenty-six naturalists have occupied the tables at the Institution. A list of their names and the time of stay will be found appended. During the same period, packages of specimens have been forwarded to fifty-one different naturalists and institutions. A list of these is also appended.
