By the Hon'ble Mr. E. H. C. Walsh, C.S.I. I have been asked by His Honour the President to deliver the Annual Address this year. We all regret that the many other calls on His Honour's time have prevented him from delivering the Annual Presidential Address as he has done since the inauguration of this Society.

The Society has made steady progress during the year. Twenty-eight new members have joined. This is, however, less than in the previous year in which 38 new members joined, and I hope that the present year will show a still further increase. The present number of members and subscribers is now 338 as compared with 319 at the end of 1916 and 237 at the end of 1915.

Government has generously provided the Society with a Library of about one thousand volumes of select books and Journals, and a reading room has been fitted up for the use of members. Mr. S. Sinha will, it is expected, shortly make over to the Society the books in his library on the subjects dealt with by the Society. Rajı Kamaleswari Praśād Singh, of Monghyr, who has already been so generous to this Society, has just made a further donation of Rs. 1,000 for the purchase of books.
