IN order that this volume should not exceed the size most acceptable to readers, it has been found necessary'to confine it to the record of only seven meetings, beginning With the meeting of January and ending With that of October of the current year. The contents, however, are unusually varied, and comprise numerous communi cations oi permanent value and importance. Among them are the paper on Civilization and Savagery, by Cr. Stanley hall; samuel A. Green's list of Early American Imprints; the president's paper on The Con Stitutional Ethics of Secession; morton dexter's paper on The Members of the Pilgrim Company at Leyden andrew mcfarland davis's paper on The Merchants' Notes of 1733; the remarks by the president and william W. Goodwin on the battles of Marathon and Salamis the president's exhaustive paper on an alleged interview between Queen Victoria and Charles Francis Adams, American Minister to Great Britain. The Price Letters, the letters of Benjamin Vaughan, and the letters of Virginians in 1782, 1783, on the adoption of the Federal Constitution, are important contributions tovi preface.
