EIGHTH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING,

HELD

AT

THE HOTEL WINDSOR, VICTORIA STREET,

WESTMINSTER.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 11, 1892.

SIR HENRY W. PEEK, BART., Vice-President, in the Chair.

The Minutes of the Ordinary Meeting, held on March 9, were read and confirmed.

The following nine candidates were elected Fellows of the Society:The Rev. William Done Bushell, Harrow. Edward Harrison, Esq., Silverton, Enfield. Albert Chevalier Haseltine, Esq., 21 Rue Godot de Mauroy,

Victoria, Melbourne. The Chairman then called upon the Hon. Secretary to read the Annual Report of the Council, as follows:Report of the Council to the Eighth Annual General Meeting,

Wednesday, May 11, 1892. The year that has elapsed since the last General Meeting has been one of unusually widespread illness, and the Council are sorry to say that the Society has suffered in consequence, having lost five Fellows and one Honorary Fellow by death during the past twelve months.

Whilst lamenting all these, the Council would here mention with special regret the names of General F. P. Layard and Mr. H. M. Godfray. They believe that no Fellow of the Society ever took a keener interest in its welfare than General Layard. He was one of its original founders ; he contributed several papers to its Proceedings, and was unwearied in his efforts to promote its prosperity in every way possible. He had served on the Council from 1885 to 1888, and from 1889 to 1891; at the last Annual Meeting he was again elected to the same office, but passed away very soon afterwards. A brief memoir of him will be found in the forthcoming number of * Proceedings."

General Layard was one of the older Members of the Society, but it is not only among them that illness has been proving fatal. At the early age of 28, when he had but just entered on a career which seemed full of promise, Mr. H. M. Godfray was suddenly taken from an official position of importance in his native island of Jersey, and from the midst of work useful to this and other Societies. Mr. Godfray had edited the Registers of the Walloon Church at Southampton two years ago, and was preparing to write a history of that Church and settlement for the Society when so unexpectedly seized by his fatal illness.

The Honorary Fellow, whose death has occurred within the last two months only, is M. Jules Bonnet, Secretary to the Société de l'Histoire du Protestantisme Français, and wellknown as one of the ablest contributors for many years to that Society's Bulletin. His loss will be deplored by all readers of that periodical, and especially by the Société, which he served so zealously and so long.

Besides these 6 losses by death, there have been 14 by resignation, and 7 by default, making a total of 27; against which there is a gain of 37 new Fellows, thus making a nett increase of 10 in the Society's numbers. The list, therefore, now comprises 369 Fellows, and 17 Honorary Fellows; total 386.

The Council are gratified in drawing attention to the various great national and public Libraries which have recently joined the Society for the sake of securing its publications. First in order and importance ranks the Bibliothèque Nationale at Paris, and this is followed by the Public Library of Boston, Massachusetts, the Library of Harvard University, and the Public Library of Victoria at Melbourne. The Council feel
