    Since the last meeting, Volume XXVI of the Society’s Publications has been distributed. This contains the Transactions from March, 1924, to December, 1926, inclusive. By an oversight, the inscription under the portrait of Sir Henry Vane (facing page 276) says that the original painting is owned by the Society, whereas it is owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
