The Chairman then called upon the Hon. Secretary to read the Annual Report of the Council as follows:

Report of the Council to the Ninth Annual General Meeting,

Thursday, May 11, 1893. The Council regret to report a loss of twenty-nine Fellows during the past year, being two more than in the year preceding. The losses by death were then six, they are now eight, one of which has occurred within the last few days only. The Council allude to this with special regret, it being that of one of the original Fellows, and they believe, the oldest in point of age, His Honour Judge Bayley having joined the Society at its foundation in April, 1885, and having now passed away from it at the advanced age of ninety.

The Council sincerely deplore the diminution of the Society's numbers by death, and equally lament that caused by resignation. In the latter case, however, they can look forward with a certain amount of hope that some, at least, of the Fellows who have lately resigned may, at a future time, apply for re-election.

As a set-off against these various losses, twenty-four new Fellows have been elected since the last Annual Meeting, including those elected to-day, thus reducing the actual loss to five. Two new Honorary Fellows have also been elected. The total number now on the list is therefore 380, of whom 361 are subscribing Fellows, and 19 are honorary.

The Treasurer's Balance sheet (which will be printed with this Report) shews a total income for the year ending December 31, 1892, of £514 10s. 2d., and an expenditure of £495 8s. 9d., leaving a balance at that date of £19 ls. 5d. The actual balance this evening is £38 17s. 5d. and the Society also stands possessed of $477 18s. 7d. invested in 23 p. c. Consols.

Since the General Meeting two volumes of the Quarto Series of publications have been issued, and the first Number of the fourth volume of “Proceedings”. The two quarto volumes comprise the Registers of the Conformed Churches of St. Patrick and St. Mary, Dublin, edited by Dr. La Touche, and the Denizations and Naturalizations of Aliens in England from 1509 to 1603, edited by Mr. Page. The second part of the Canterbury Registers, forming Volume V. of the Quarto Series, is in the press, and the Council propose to issue it as early as practicable in the coming year.

In their last Report they alluded to the transcript of the Threadneedle Street Registers. This has since been steadily continued, and a sufficient amount of these most important Registers is now ready for the printer and will be put in hand as soon as the Society's funds justify the necessary expenditure; and also, the Council inust add, conditionally on their being able to find a competent editor.

The Council need hardly expatiate on the success of the Conference held last July at Colchester, but they may take this opportunity of reminding the Society that, in accordance with the Resolution passed at the March Meetiny, there wiil be no Conference during the coming summer.

In conclusion, the Council desire to tender their thanks to their colleagues retiring from office this evening (Mr. Belleroche, Mr. Crisp, Mr. Minet, and Brigadier-General Gosset), also to the Treasurer, Mr. Roumieu, and the Auditors, Mr. Ouvry and Mr. Rousselet, for the constant help they have given in the management of the Society's affairs during the past twelvemonth.
