Moved by Mr. Elvins, and seconded by Mr. Harvey and Resolved that this Society gratefully accepts the donation made to the Society by Lady Wilson of the astronomical telescope and the celestial globe of the late Sir Adam Wilson, a donation valuable, not only as a prized memento of an esteemed friend and active member, but intrinsically and as a nucleus around which the Society trusts the accessories of a popular observatory will be gathered in due time.

Moved by Mr. Miller, Seconded by Mr. G.A. ??? LL.D., and Resolved that as a slight work of the Society's appreciation of Lady Wilson's gift, she be asked to permit her name to be submitted for nomination as a Life Member of this Society, and that the telescope and celestial globe, when received, be known and inscribed as "The Sir Adam Wilson Memorial."
