Excerpt from Bulletin of the Geographical Society of California, Vol. 1: Part I.; March, 1893
The Board of Directors have done their best to secure good lecturers, and I am gratified to be enabled to state that almost every one of the fourteen addresses delivered during the y... ear under the auspices of the Society are universally acknowledged to be of great value as contributions to knowledge. It will be the pleasant task of such of the present Directors as are re-elected to counsel the same course during 1893. The ser vices oi several well-known scientific men have been already secured.
The funds of the Society have not hitherto been sufficient to commence the publication of its transactions. The Direct ors have, however, accepted the offer of an able paper by Mr. Thomas Crawford Johnston, which was issued in the shape of a special bulletin, and forwarded to every member. It is the intention that it shall be followed in January by the first volume of the Society's Transactions, and that these shall afterwards appear quarterly.
The Directors have to give their sincere thanks to such of the members as have made contributions of books, maps, and atlases, to the library. A certain proportion of these dona tions have been accepted instead of dues in cash, their value being considerably in excess of those dues, as shown in the statement of the assets of the Society.
