If we add to the amount of funds in hand, the value of the 300 complete sets of Papers, for which we are finding ready sale, mentioned above as worth, unbound, $7,200, and a subscription to our Special Fund of $4,000, already secured from entirely responsible parties, it will be seen that the financial outlook of the Society is decidedly hopeful.

It may be added that the books of the Secretary and the Treasurer show detailed statements of receipts and disbursements, which, sustained by proper vouchers, have been submitted to and passed upon by our Auditing Committee, who also must approve every account before the Treasurer can pay it.
