Minute Book

Scope and Content

The volume contains minutes of regular and special meetings of the Society's Council, and very occasionally meetings of the Finance Committee and other committees. The minutes follow the same format as MBH2/1/3 above. Occasional lists of accounts are given, but not as regularly as in previous volumes. There are two lists of members who have forfeited their shares in the Society owing to non-payment of their subscriptions, 1859, and a list of new shareholders, 1860. There are numerous enclosures pasted-in, including letters, circulars, copies of rules, statements of subscriptions, and estimates and tenders from suppliers.
