Abstract of Annual Report.
The secretary's report gave particulars of the meetings held, and drew especial attention to the additions to the Museum collections resulting from Mr. E. Lukins's trip to the southern islands on behalf of the Society.
The curator reported the Museum to be in good order, but, as it was entirely without any public endowment, the expense of many much-needed improvements could not at present be incurred.
The balance-sheet set forth the receipts for the year (including the balance brought forward, £14 7s. 8d.) to be £20 13s. 8d., the expenditure £11 4s. 10d. (of which £6 11s. was in connection with the Public Museum). A balance is brought forward of £9 8s. 10d.
