July 1, 1835-Since the first formation of the Company, 104 YEARS.

*The Instrument of Association, signed by thirty-eight Members, was dated July 1, 1731. The first meeting of the Directors, therein appointed, was held on the eighth day of November following. The first importation of Pooks from London, amounting to £45 sterling, arrived the last of October, 1732, and on the fourteenth of the next ensuing month Louis Timothée, the first Librarian, was appointed, and the Library thereupon opened in a chamber of Robert Grace's house, in Pewter-platter Alley, now called Jones's Alley. On the seventh of April, 1740, the Library was removed from thence to the western wing of the State-house. In August, 1773, it was transferred to the Carpenters' Hall, and in October, 1790, it was placed in the present building.

† At this time the Union Library (into which the Amicable and Association Libraries had previously merged) was incorporated with this Company, and John De Mauregnault, Librarian of the former, and Ludowic Sprogle, Librarian of the latter Company, jointly performed the duties of that station, until the first of May, 1770, when Ludowic Sprogle resigned.
