Minutes of the Committee previous to an Annual Meeting.

[ocr errors]

example selected is that of the Plymouth Branch; and the Minute relative to Pawnbrokers is extracted, as containing decisive testimony on a subject which has too frequently afforded a pretext to the lukewarm and indifferent. The resolutions which relate to the regular business of the Committee are, of course, omitted, having been already detailed in the 7th division of this section.

At the 12th Meeting of the Committee, 13th September 1819,187. The Sub-Committee appointed by the 171st Minute, to ascertain the truth of certain reports relative to the Pawnbrokers, reported as follows :

“ On the most minute investigation in the town of PLYMOUTH, 'we are convinced that the objection to the Society on this ground is totally unsupported. Very few copies, comparatively, have been even offered as pledges ; and those have been refused, except in one instance; and in this the Bible was redeemed within the week. Not a single copy was found in the possession of the Pawnbrokers. In the town of Plymouth Dock, twenty-two houses of this description were visited, but not a single Bible or Testament issued by the Society was found. We were received with civility and respect; and informed, that in the few instances in which copies had been pledged, they were redeemed within a few days, and that during the last five or six months none had been offered as pledges.

In the town of Stonehouse, the result of the investigation was equally satisfactory, not one copy being discovered at the Pawnbrokers' shops.

188. The Minute Secretary having read a communication from the Com. mittee of the Auxiliary Society, stating that the Annual Meeting of that institution was fixed for the 30th instant, it was resolved,

189. That the Secretaries be requested to prepare the draught of a report to the ensuing general meeting, and submit the same to a future meeting of this Committee.

190. That the Treasurer be requested to pay over to the Auxiliary Society, on Purchase Account, the balance which she shall have in hand on the 26th inst.

191. That the Auditors be requested to prepare and present a statement of the funds of the Society, made up and balanced to the 27th instant.

192. That the Bible Secretary make up her accounts to the 27th instant, and present a statement of all Bibles and Testaments received and issued, and the stock then on hand, to a future meeting of this Committee.

193. That a Circular be immediately addressed to the several Associations connected with this society, requesting that their annual reports may be presented to the adjournment of this Committee on the 22d instant, with the names of the Officers and Committee for the ensuing year; and that the balance in the hands of their respective Treasurers, after deducting incidental expenses, be paid over at the same time.

194. That this Meeting adjourn to the 22d instant, to receive the reports of the several Associations.

It is not necessary to detail the subsequent proceedings arising out of these Resolutions. The Annual Report, after being adopted by the Committee, is transmitted, with an Abstract of the Cash and Bible Accounts, and a list of the Branch Officers and Committee for the ensuing year, to the

• The result of this inquiry will be the more gratifying, when it is stated, that at this period nearly 1700 Bibles and Testaments had been circulated by the Ladies' Society alone, besides 5000 copies previously distributed by the Auxiliary Society.
