There was a meeting this afternoon in the Combination-room of Christ's College of the general committee of the Darwin Memorial Fund, to decide whether the memorial should assume the form of a bust or a picture, and to select either the sculptor or painter willing to execute such memorial. The Master of Christ's College presided, and there was a good attendance of the members of the committee. It was stated that the funds promised amounted to over £400, which sum would be sufficient to procure either a bust or a picture. After some discussion it was resolved by a large majority that the memorial should take the form of a picture, and Mr. W. M. Richmond was selected as the artist to execute the same.
