the social side of the Historical Society is a prominent and attractive feature. Members gather on Saturday evenings, in committee meetings, or to discuss topics of mutual interest. The open wood fires, with an occasional introduction of the steaming chafing dish, give the rooms a cosey and homelike atmosphere.

the Publication Committee asks the hearty cooperation of all the members of the Society in the distribution of the register. The price has been placed at such a moderate sum that a large number ought to be disposed of. Any item of interest pertaining to the work of the Society may be sent to any member of the committee.

the Society has in its rooms a fine collection of army relics, the same being a permanent loan from Mr. M. E. Chandler, of Maiden.

the Publication Committee regrets that it will not be able to give to the readers of the register the admirable [p. 30] papers read before the Society by Rev. Henry C. DeLong, on the ‘Early Ministers of Medford,’ and by Rev. C. A. Staples, of Lexington, on the ‘Hancock Clark House,’ or the interesting address of Mr. Sylvester Baxter, of Malden, on the ‘Metropolitan Park System.’

the Society would gratefully receive as gifts or loans books or articles of historic interest and value.

Memberships in the Society are cordially invited.

the Publication Committee makes its appreciative acknowledgments to Hon. Mellen Chamberlain for his paper on ‘The Importance of preserving Early History,’ written for this number of the register.
