During the past year six general meetings were held, which had been fairly well attended, and some interesting discussions had taken place on the papers read, as might be seen from the reports of the proceedings published in the usual liberal manner by Messrs. Lyon and Blair in their Monthly Record and Review. The titles of the papers, with the names of the authors, were given, making a total of twenty-five. Four new members were elected during the year, the total number of members now on the books being a hundred and fifty. The receipts during the year amounted to £150 3s. 6d., and the expenditure was £120 4s. 3d., leaving a balance of £29 19s. 3d.; there was also a fixed deposit in the bank of £20, the first payment to the prize fund.
