Boston, May 28, 1847. The undersigned have examined the foregoing accounts, and find the same to be correctly cast, and properly vouched.

Prince Hawes,
THOMAS TARBELL,

The by-laws were further considered, and some of them adopted. But previously to the adjournment to the church, it was voted to meet at the chapel of the Church of the Saviour, on Wednesday, at 3 o'clock, P. M.

At the meeting on Wednesday, Hon. Stephen Fairbanks in the chair, the discussion was continued, and all the by-laws were adopted. Some resolutions were offered by Rev. Samuel May, Jr., but were laid on the table to give place for action on other subjects. A committee of nomination was appointed.

Adjourned to 9 o'clock, Thursday morning.

At the meeting on Thursday, Rev. Dr. Dewey communicated to the Association his inability, on account of pressing duties, to serve as President another year, and C. K. Dillaway, Esq., declined being a candidate for one of the Directors.

The committee of nomination reported a list of names to be balloted for as officers at the proposed legal meeting.

A committee was appointed to consider the subject of the salary of the General Secretary, and reported that it be fixed at 2,000 dollars.

Mr. May's resolutions were then taken up, and the first, after a full discussion, was adopted, viz. :

Resolved, That we believe slaveholding to be in direct opposition to the law and will of God, and entirely incompatible with the precepts and spirit of Christianity.

The second resolution was laid upon the table.

A resolution of Francis Alger, Esq., to present a set of bound Tracts to each of the colleges and theological schools in the United States, was referred to the Executive Committee.

Adjourned.

Pursuant to a legal notice, the Association met at the chapel of the Church of the Saviour, on Thursday, June 3d, Hon. Stephen Fairbanks in the chair.

After prayers by Rev. Samuel Barrett, the act of in

corporation, passed at the last session of the legislature, was unanimously adopted.

Rev. Samuel Barrett, Henry H. Fuller, and George W. Warren, Esqrs., were appointed a committee to report a code of by-laws. They submitted a draft, similar to that offered by the Executive Committee the week previous, which, after some discussion, was adopted.

On motion of Rev. Mr. Lothrop, it was voted that all the life-members of the unincorporated Association be regarded as life-members under the new organization.

A committee was then appointed to collect the votes for officers, and the following gentlemen were chosen.

PRESIDENT.

Rev. Ezra S. GANNETT, D. D.
