REGULAR MEETINGS, 1905-1906. | 

100'). 
May o. Annual Meeting. Reading of annual reports, election of officers 
and iransuotion of business. 

At this meeting, Mr. W'illianj P. Upliam was elected an honorary 
member. 

Aug. 26. A Field meeting was held at the home of Mr. Walter B. Osborn, 
at the "Osborn Farm," 42 Andover street. The President, Francis 
Henry Api)leton, jircsifleil and with well chosen words welcomed 
a large number of members and guests. An historical sketch of 
"the Farm" was given by Mrs. L. P. Osborn, including quotations 
from the Records, from the Diary of Eliza Southgate, 1802, and 
from descriptive i)OemB of Dr. Andrew Nichols, 1852, and of Mr. 
Walter Scott Lovejoy. This was followed by the story in verse of 
a young girl-wife .and one time neighbor across the way, .Sally 
Dealaud; entitled, "An old New England Bride, an Incident,"

composed aud read most gracefully by lier descendant Mrs. W. A. _^ ^ 
Lloyd, of Chicago. Hon. Kobert H. Rautoul tlieu added his always ^ 
welcome words, referring to a description of the Farm in Dr. 
Beutley's Diary in 1791 aud suggesting what a bit of beauty 
might become the standpipe on Buxton's Hill were vines planted 
aud grown about it. After the serving of refreshments by Mrs. 
H. Maria Palmer and her hospitality committee, the company ad- 
journed to Buxton's Hill where the Rev. John W. Hudson gave a 
most instructive and interesting talk on the geology of that re- 
gion. As this was the last opportunity to visit the hill before its 
destructiou, much interest was manifested. 

Nov. 13. Mrs. Lyman P. Osborn gave a ''Report of the Conference of the 
American Library Association at Portland, Oregon, and the Post 
Conference Trip to Alaska" illustrated with souvenirs. 

Dec. 13. Rev. Alfred P. Putnam, D. D., gave the Society a paper on "Put- 
namville and the Early Shoe Manufacturers of Danvers." As Dr. 
Putnam came from this part of Danvers aud his ancestors were 
among these first manufacturers, he was able to give us a most in- 
structive and entertaining paper. As this was the last time we 
were to see Dr. Putnam it will always be a great subject of con- 
gratulation that the Society was permitted to hear him on that 
occasion. 
1906. 

Jan. 10. Mr. John Albree of Swampscott gave his paper on "How Time 
Was Kept in the Days when we Lived under a King." Mr. Al- 
bree brought with him several old watches and an ancient clock, 
without case, which had been in his family over 200 years. He 
explained how time was kept in ancient days and surprised us by 
the information of the comi>aratively modern introduction of 
watches and clocks into common use. The lecture was most 
brilliant and much appreciated by the audience. 

Feb. 21. Mr. Ezra D. Hines of Danvers gave an illustrated lecture on "A 
Vacation Trip in the British Isles with special reference to George 
Peabody, Old Danvers and George Downing." This lecture was 
held in the Masonic banquet hall and v^as much enjoyed by a large 
audience. Light refreshments were afterwards served in the 
rooms of the Society, adjoining. 

At this meeting, in response to inquiries by friends aud the recom- 
mendation of the Executive Committee, it was voted by the Society 
that any members who wished to save themselves the trouble of 
paying annual dues might become Life Members on payment of 
$25.00. 

Mar. 15. Miss Mary Elizabeth Poole, one of the members of the Society, 
gave a very interesting aud instructive paper on "Social Needs 
and Society Action." Miss Poole being at present engaged in the 
study of Social Service was able to speak largely from her own 
experience, giving also the history of the best known movements 
towards the betterment of social conditions among the poor. 

April 19. This Day was observed appropriately by the Society. The graves 
of the Revolutionary Soldiers were decorated with flags, and the 
annual gift of the town of $5.00, with myrtle donated by the 
South Church, ensured a fine decoration of the Lexington Monu- 
uraent. The presentation of a drama by members and friends of 
the Society w^as unavoidably postponed one week, when, April 
26th there was given in the Unitarian hall one of the best ama- 
teur performances ever seen in this town, no paius having been
