Excerpt from Proceedings of the Philadelphia Society for Promoting Agriculture, for the Years 1854, 1855 and 1856: To Which Are Prefixed a Catalogue of the Exhibition of 1855, the Awards of Premiums, and the Address of Ex-Governor Bigler The minutes Of the Meetings, viewed merely as a calendar Of Operations, con tinned during three years, exhibit no symptoms Of decrepitude or decay in the Society, but indicate a degree of vigor and earnestness in projecting and carrying forward its great objects, which is worthy of its illustrious founders - now alas! All departed - and which have kept it in the van, during the recent onward march of American Agriculture. Prompted by a sense of filial duty and honorable ancestral pride, the Society in 1854, published and distributed gratuitously to kindred organizations, its Minutes, from the date of its institution, 1785, to 1810. During this period of a quarter of a century, the Society, originally designed to promote Agriculture and Rural Affairs, and especially a greater increase of the products of land within the American States, was national in its character and its usefulness, and these Oopies of the early records were received as they were sent, as a tribute Of respect for the past, and as tokens of friendship towards sister societies throughout the Union. The same Spirit of veneration planned and animated the celebration of the seventy-first anniversary, February 1856.
