The issue of this volume under the title of “PROCEEDINGS OF THE ROYAL COLONIAL INSTITUTE” requires explanation. The Institute was originally formed as the COLONIAL SOCIETY, and shortly afterwards received Her Majesty's sanction to prefix the title of ROYAL. Inconvenience from the similarity of the initials with those of the Royal College of Surgeons having arisen, the name of the Society was, by vote of General Meeting, on the 7th of March, 1870, changed to that of THE ROYAL COLONIAL INSTITUTE.
