The Resolution was unanimously agreed to, and the President in accepting the office, thanked the meeting for inviting him to occupy the position.
Mr. FREDERICK ACTON, J.P., proposed :
That the following gentlemen be elected Vice-Presidents:-
Mr. J. P. BRISCOE seconded the resolution, which was passed unanimously.
Mr. HUGH BROWNE then moved :
That the best thanks of this Meeting be given to the Duke of St. Albans for his courtesy in filling the chair, and to the Magistrates of the County of Nottingham for the use of this
He said that all felt the want of that Society and the difficulty of starting it, but that difficulty was overcome when the name of the Duke of St. Alban's as President gave assurance
For that and for so kindly presiding, the least and best return was their thanks.
Dr. PERCY P. TRUMAN Seconded the resolution, remarking that the Duke had for years taken a personal interest in the literature and art of the County. No man could be found better qualified by intellect and attainments to fill the position of President, which he had been kindly pleased to accept at that Meeting.
The Resolution was unanimously carried.
The DUKE OF ST. ALBANS, in reply, said he must disown any credit for the formation of the Society. The work had been done by Lord Hawkesbury and Mr. Phillimore, and they must all agree that the Society had been started on the most satisfactory basis. He hoped sincerely that it would be generally supported, and that the interesting events which in times past had occurred in the County of Nottingham would be preserved. He thought that Society would bring to light the fact that the ancient County of Nottingham had had a history, and a most interesting history, not only in times which were almost prehistoric, but also from the days when the Danes first came to the town of Nottingham.
Mr. HUGH BROWNE proposed a vote of thanks to Lord Hawkesbury and Mr. Phillimore, for their great and welcome work in organizing that Society, and for their services in acting as Provisional Secretaries, and after this had been acknowledged by Mr. Phillimore, the meeting terminated.
