On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. Cazelet, it was unanimously resolved to accept the invitation that had been received for the Association to hold its Fifth Annual Session in Natal; Meetings to be held jointly at Pietermaritzburg and Durban.

With regard to the Meeting in 1908, Dr. Schönland stated that although he was not in a position to extend a definite invitation at present, it might be taken for granted that the Association would be invited to hold its Sixth Annual Meeting in Grahamstown.

At the suggestion of Dr. Lyster Jameson, which received the support of Professor Duerden and many others, Mr. Innes (the Acting Hon. Secretary), agreed to furnish the more important scientific journals in England with copies of any abstracts of papers read at this Meeting with which authors would supply him.
