In his report the Honorary Treasurer had drawn attention to the fact that the Nelson and Manawatu Societies were not fulfilling the conditions laid down for Member Bodies in that the subscriptions received did not reach £25 annually. Professor Easterfield explained the position in regard to the Nelson Institute and the Nelson Philosophical Society, stating that the Nelson Institute, which was the member body, maintained a lending and reference library at an annual subscription, and the Nelson Philosophical Society, which was the scientific section of the Institute, paid an additional 7s 6d per annum per member in order to receive the Transactions. Some difficulty had been encountered in obtaining the Nelson Institute's balance sheet, but it was hoped to be able to forward one in due course.

A letter was read from the Manawatu Branch stating that so far it had not been possible to obtain in subscriptions the requisite amount of £25, but it was hoping to do so either by increasing the present subscription or by procuring new members, although this latter would be difficult on account of the transfer to other parts of New Zealand of members of the Plant Research Station. Letter received.
