Excerpt from The Twelfth Annual Report of the Trustees With the List of Members: For the Year Ending December 31, 1887 Since the last meeting of the Corporation the financial needs of the Institution have continued to demand the earnest solicitude of your Trustees. The insufficiency of the resources to meet the. Demands upon them and the growing load of debt seemed for a time seriously to impair the prospect of the successful continuance of the work intrusted to them. At the last annual meeting of the Corporation a resolution was adopted providing for the appointment of a Committee of Ten Citizens to devise plans to raise money to carry on the School, to pay the Floating Debt, and to obtain contributions to the Endow ment Fund. This plan did not meet with such encouragement as was hoped for. In February a joint committee of the Trustees and the Associate Committee of Women was appointed to go to Harrisburg to solicit legislation in favor of an appropriation for the support and exten sion of the School. This Committee met with gratifying success. They secured for these purposes an annual appropriation of ten thousand dollars for two years. While this provision has relieved your Trustees from immediate anxiety about the permanency of our School, the insufficiency of the resources for the work to be done has been constantly forced upon their minds. In particular they feel that it is absolutely necessary to pay off the floating debt. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
