A Letter From Walker Tisdale of New Brunswick, to Joseph Tisdale, Vittoria, Miss Palmer, Vittoria.

Two members have been removed by death: H. N. Courtlandt, Esq., and J. W. Tripp, M.D. One new member was added, making the total membership 54.

President -- Frank Reid
Sec.-Tres. -- H. Frank Cook

At the next meeting, Friday evening, Feb. 18th, three papers will be read, contributed by Dr. McInnes, Vittoria; E. A. Owen, Delhi; and Delbert T. McCall, Simcoe.
