Annual Report of the American Institute, of the City of New York for the Year 1866-67 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Annual Report of the American Institute, of the City of New York for the Year 1866-67 If the valuable information disseminated by them in their weekly meetings were confined simply to their own members, it would richly compensate for the efforts put into execution to sustain these associations. But when it is remembered that their proceedings are published weekly, and receive a large and wide circulation, it is a matter of great congratulation that so many members of the Institute are found who freely devote their time and efforts to send broadcast throughout our country so large an amount of valuable and useful knowledge. The other active standing committees will report the results of their operations, to which reference is made for a detailed View of all movements of the Institute for the year now about closing. As one evidence of its prosperity, it seems proper to state that 260 new members have been received Since the last annual report. The volume of Transactions for 1865 and '6 has been received, and is ready for distribution to the members. It possesses the same high character of its late predecessors. It is worthy of recognition, that the last Legislature awarded to the Institute one thousand volumes, which is a much greater number than any pre vions edition.
