[82] schools at Dover, N. H., and Blenheim, Canada, were aided. At this time the formation of a national confederation of young people's societies was being agitated, and our constitution was made the basis of the proposed society. Alfred Cardall was at the head of the movement, and the result was our present national Y. P. C. U.

Miss Gertrude Earle was the next president, serving from June, 1889, to June, 1890. Her term of office was an exceedingly busy one. Aid was given the new societies at Cambridge and Arlington, leaders being supplied for their meetings at times. Money was given toward the scholarship at Tufts, founded by the Ladies' Society, toward the Bethany Home for Women, and toward the Japan Mission. On January 4, 1890, the society joined the national Y. P. C. U.

Miss Mary E. Ferguson held the office of president for the next six months. As the fair was held at this time, all the energies of the society were devoted to that.

F. H. Safford was the next president, holding office from January, 1891, to January, 1892. So many calls were made upon the society at this time, that an entertainment committee was formed to raise funds, and they were, and have been, successful. Much outside work was done, and our own church helped.

Mr. Safford was succeeded by H. T. Harwood (January, 1892, to June, 1892). The society devoted their whole strength to the church at this time, and $100 was paid toward defraying the expenses of an unfortunate lawsuit.

Mrs. F. H. Safford was elected president June, 1892, and served until June, 1893. During her term of office, more outside work was done than at any other time.

In June, 1893, George F. Fortier was elected president. He resigned February 4, 1896, and Miss Amy Meserve was elected president. This same year $25 was contributed toward the Social Hall fund.
