Contained in which you will find a financial statement of the Society's condition, a list of the ofiicials for 1879, as well as many papers, which I trust will be interesting and valuable. The Annual Meeting of the Society was held in London on the 20th September, when reports from the Montreal and London branches were read, which showed these branches to be in a healthy and vigorous condition. We are glad to note that the subject of Entomology is claiming more attention than-heretofore, especially among our agriculturists; which points to a pleasing future, when this attractive study will be generally pursued throughout our land.. The organ.of the Society, The Entomologist, is issued monthly, and regularly appears, its pages filled with the results of new and interesting observations on insect life. The number of its subscribers is yearly growing larger, and everything in connection with the Society indicates a prosperous condition. The Report which we now present will be found to contain many excellent illustrations in connection with the subjects treated of, many of which have been specially engraved in England for this report.
