19 November, 1907

    AN Adjourned Meeting of the Council was held on Tuesday, 19 November, 1907, at three o’clock in the afternoon.

    Present, Messrs. Henry Winchester Cunningham, Henry Herbert Edes, Frederick Lewis Gay, George Lyman Kittredge, and Albert Matthews.

    President George Lyman Kittredge occupied the chair.

    The following minute, offered by Mr. Edes, was adopted:

    The Members of the Council of the Colonial Society of Massachusetts wish to place on their Records an expression of their appreciation of the services rendered to the Society during the past seven years by President George Lyman Kittredge, who has declined a re-election. They would also record their regret at his decision, since it will deprive them of his delightful fellowship at this Board as well as of his wise counsel and of his ability as its presiding officer. In his retirement from office Mr. Kittredge will carry with him the affectionate regard of his associates, who will ever cherish the years spent with him in service to the Society as a delightful memory.
