Excerpt from Proceedings of the Natural History Society of Glasgow, Vol. 4: 1878-1880 Mr. James Barclay Murdoch, Vice-President, in the chair. The Treasurer submitted his Annual Financial Statement, which showed a balance in favour of the Society of 73 13s. 5d. The Secretary read the Report of the Council on the business of last Session. Since last Annual Meeting the death of four members had been recorded, viz., Mr. Charles Malloch, a life member; Mr. Thomas S. Hutcheson, Dr. James M'Pherson, and Mr. James Wingate, ordinary members. During the Session 26 members were admitted, one of whom paid the life composition, as did also four who were formerly on the roll. The total number of members last year was 150, and, making allowance for deaths, resignations, and removals, the roll at present numbers 166, being an increase of 16 since last Annual Meeting. No Special Meetings were held during the Session, but the eight ordinary Monthly Meetings were all well attended, and the business throughout was varied and interesting. Several important papers were read, and many specimens of interest were brought forward for exhibition. Full Reports of all the Meetings appeared in the North British Daily Mail, and the work of the Society was thus kept before absent members, as well as before those of the general public who might take an interest in Natural History pursuits.
