Excerpt from Annals, North British Society, Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1768-1903: With Portraits and Biographical Notes Inﬂuenced by many patriotic motives, the Society recently decided to publish, on a more elaborate scale than heretofore, a third Volume of Records, which would not only cover the intervening ten years since last publi cation, but would include portraits and short historical notes Of our most distinguished Presidents, orators and benefactors, and also of a few conspicuous members, not always office-holders, who had served faithfully the Institution, keeping to this aim - that a history of a body, and not a number of individuals. Was the end in View. This very praiseworthy commission was again committed to me to carry out, and in the volume now submitted, I have endeavoured to meet the well-under stood wishes of the Society. Thus, portraits have been inserted of many leading members who, from the foundation in 1768, have in. Their generation been among the brightest and best of the citizens of Halifax - alien whose features and careers are worthy of preservation, and whose names are associ ated with all that tends to advance the interests of our Society, as well as the intellectual and mercantile progress of our community.
