Correspondence (including communications from intending Members or Associates, &c.) to be addressed to “ The Secretary." (For Subscription, see page 3 of cover.)



THIS SOCIETY has been founded for the purpose of promoting the following

Objects, which will be admitted by all to be of high importance both to Religion and Science :First. To investigate fully and impartially the most important questions of

Philosophy and Science, but more especially those that bear upon the great truths revealed in Holy Scripture, with the view of reconciling any apparent

discrepancies between Christianity and Science. Second.—To associate MEN OF SCIENCE and AUTHORS* who have already

been engaged in such investigations, and all others who may be interested in them, in order to strengthen their efforts by association, and by bringing together the results of such labours, after full discussion, in the printed Transactions of an Institution ; to give greater force and influence to proofs and arguments which might be little known, or even disregarded, if put forward merely by individuals.

(For the special advantages secured to Country and Colonial Members and Associates in the Journal of Transactions, see page 3 of cover.] * The Society now consists of 750 Subscribing Members (NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF WHOM ARE COUNTRY AND FOREIGN MEMBERS); including His Grace the Archbishop of Cadterbury and other Prelates and leading Ministers of Religion, Professors of English and Foreign Universities, Literary and Scientific Mon in general, and others favourable to the Objects. The present average annual increase is upwards of a hundred.)



The Journal of Transactions

Is arranged so as to secure its special usefulness to Country and Foreign Members and Associates (who form two-thirds of the Institute). It contains the Papers read at the Meetings, and the Discussions thereon,

Before they are published in the Journal, the papers themselves, and the discussions, are revised and corrected by their Authors, and MS. comments and supplementary remarks are added, which have been sent in by those Home and Foreign Members to whom, as being specially qualified to pronounce an opinion upon the respective subjects, proof copies of the Papers have been submitted for consideration. These arrangements, which cannot but add to the value of the Journal, are carried out with a view to the advantage of all, especially Country and Foreign Members, who thus find in the Journal much valuable matter, in addition to that which had come before those actually present at the Meetings.

Intending Members and Associates are requested to apply to “The Secretary.”

The Annual Subscription for Members is Two Guineas, with One Guinea Entrance Fee (see privileges). The Annual Subscription for Associates is one Guinea, without Entrance Fee.

In lieu of Annual Subscription, the payment of Twenty Guineas (without Entrance Fee) will constitute a Life NIember, or Ten Guineas a Life associate.

The payment of a Donation of not less than Sixty Guineas qualifies for the office of Vice-Patron, with all the privileges of a Life Member or Life Associate.

[It is to be understood, that only such as are professedly Christians are entitled to become Members.]
