A few weeks ago we received the sad news from Robertsport of the decease of our Liberian collector A. T. Demery. This is a great loss for the sake of zoological investigation in Liberia and the neighbouring districts of Sierra Leone, and especially for our Museum which, by this death, looses its last direct connection with that part of Western Africa. As the readers of our »Notes” will remember, the collections received from Mr. Demery since about a year were very interesting, and amongst many objects contained several novelties. His last collection, made on the Sulymah River, is expected in here every day, and as soon as we will have received it, an ample list will be prepared of the birds collected by him on the mentioned river.
