Bundle: 'Lit & Phil'

Scope and Content

Correspondence relating to a proposed amalgamation with the Lit. & Phil. and Statistical Societies in 1853. In 1853 the LPS proposed a union with MMS, and initially received a favourable response. LPS was also negotiating a union with the Statistical Society. Under the plan, MMS members would have paid the ordinary subscriptions of LPS but had their own officers and section. The plan was very tentative and is not referred to in the minutes of the MMS.
