Minutes of the Union Society : Being an Abstract of Existing Records, from 1750 to 1858; Comprising, Also, Chronological Lists of Its Officers, Members and Beneficiaries (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Minutes of the Union Society: Being an Abstract of Existing Records, From 1750 to 1858; Comprising, Also, Chronological Lists of Its Officers, Members and Beneficiaries The list or officers and members presents the names of many worthy and benevolent citizens, who once occupied the places of those of to-day; and whose names, with theirs, will be handed down to their successors, and be often called to memory hereafter. Arranged as they are, as far as could be ascertained, in the year of their admission, these names tell something, also, of the progress of the institution and of its history. The names of beneficiaries are also appended, as far as could be ascertained, and show, in part, the operations of the institution and what has been accomplished. These lists of members and beneficiaries have been obtained by a careful and repeated examination of every page of the minutes and other books in possession of the Society, and from other investigations. It is hoped they may yet be made more complete: they are paged separately with a view to their continuation. With the missing records, the Society has also to regret the loss of its Seal, no legible trace of which has yet been obtained. The new career entered upon by the Society, and the newly awakened interest felt by its members, since the location of the institution upon the grounds of the ancient Bethesda, upon the principle of a farm-school, opens to view an extended field of usefulness, which may be limited in the future, it is hoped, only by the number of those who may need its shelter and support.
