It is important that the Association should be promptly imformed of changes of address of any members, in order that they may receive their copies of Transactions.

The SECRETARY. Mr. President, I certify that a copy of the call was mailed to each member at least ten days before this date, in accordance with Article 16 of the by-laws, and that a quorum is now present for the transaction of any business which may come before this meeting.
