At the January meeting of the society, Hon. C. H. Porter, of Quincy, gave an address, entitled ‘The 39th Massachusetts Regiment in the Civil War.’ From personal observation, careful study of official reports and the writings of various commanders, he was able to give his hearers a vivid account of the movements of the regiment from the time of its organization until the victory before Richmond.

The Saturday evening course of lectures for 1903 offers an attractive set of topics.

Last month Mr. Walter C. Wright read a paper on the ‘Gypsy Moth: Past, Present and Future,’ describing the habits of the pest and the most effective way of ridding the city of its ravages. He placed great responsibility on individual occupants of real estate, who might, by conscientious work, keep the moth in check on private property, while the State and City could be fully occupied in taking care of the trees in reservations, parks and highways.

The following papers will be given during the winter and spring:—

January 3.—‘Some Evils of our present Nominating System, and how they can be removed.’ Hon. F. W. Dallinger, of Cambridge.

February 7.—‘Matthew Cradock.’ Mr. W. K. Watkins, of Malden.

March 7.—‘How can we make Medford more beautiful?’ Mr. Edward P. Adams.

April 4.—‘The Second Charter of Massachusetts.’ Mr. Walter H. Cushing.

May 2.—‘Spot Pond, as it was and is.’ Mr. Herbert A. Weitz.
