“Not the least valuable of the educational activities at the Royal Albert Memorial, Exeter, has been the series of Saturday night lectures on a variety of interesting subjects, dealt with popularly by members of the staff. Mr Rowley, our gifted Curator, arranged the series, and appropriately enough he delivered the final lecture for this season, his subject being 'Some injurious animals and their work.' The lecture was really scheduled earlier in the list, but Mr Rowley was ill, and there had to be postponement.

[detailed description of the lecture content follows]

A hearty vote of thanks was passed to Mr Rowley at the close, and he, in reply, thanked Mr Wright, the lanternist, and all who had helped to make the lecture series so entirely successful.”


This lecture was originally scheduled for 12 February 1910 as the seventh of its series, but was postponed for a month because the lecturer was unwell.
