The subject of a change in the amount of the assessment, annually 
levied upon members of the Society, being taken up, it was moved 
by Rev. Pres. Woolsey, seconded, discussed, and unanimously re- 
solved : " That the members of. the Society pay henceforth the sum 
of five dollars annually into its treasury, instead of two. dollars as 
hitherto ; and that the amount required to constitute a life-member, 
be seventy-five dollars." 

The condition of the library, and the expediency of its removal 
from its present place of deposit, having been brought to the notice 
of the Society by the Corr. Seer., the following resolution was offered 
by Dr. Beck, debated, and unanimously voted : " That it is the opin- 
ion of the meeting now assembled, that a removal of the library of 
the Society from Boston to New Haven would be, under the present 
circumstances, expedient and desirable ; and that the subject be re- 
ferred, for further consideration and decision, to the next meeting to 
be held in Boston." 

An Annual Meeting was held in Boston, on the 23d and 24th of 
May, 1855. The President of the Society in the chair. 

Prof. Whitney made a brief report in behalf of the committee on 
the library ; and the subject of the removal of the library to New 
Haven was taken up. It was voted : "That the partial report made 
by the committee on the library be accepted, and the committee dis- 
charged;" It was also voted, without dissent : " That the library of 
the Society be removed to New Haven." The Librarian, together 
with Professors Salisbury and Gibbs, were appointed to carry into 
effect the vote respecting the removal of the library, and to prepare 
rules for the use of the same, and a catalogue of the books ; with 
authority to draw on the treasury for such funds as may be needed 
for these purposes. 

On motion of Dr. Beck, it was voted : " That the thanks of the 
Society be communicated to Mr. Folsom for his faithful and useful 
services as Librarian during the period in which the library has been 
under his care in the Boston Athenaeum." 


The officers of the last year were re-elected, with the exception 

that Prof. W. D. Whitney of New Haven was chosen Librarian in 

the place of Mr. Folsom, in consequence of the vote of the Society 

to remove the library.
