In witness whereof- ha— set - hand*— and seal— the-day of -,182’, Witness, A.... B.... - --[Seal.] The undersigned conceives that a regard to candor of fair dealing, requires him on die present occasion to make a brief expose of the situation of the funds of the society, that the members thereof may be fully in formed of the condition of their institution, and that they may be the better prepared to suggest any measures which the exigency may require. He deems this expose, in this way, the more necessary, because he is aware that notwithstanding the usual efforts to diffuse information through the medium of thp an nual reports which are piin’.ed and distri buted, that many members, particuly in the country, are not a ivued of the state of | their funds, Summary Statement, shewing the condiion of the country Branch of the MA So ciety on first May, 1821. The whole amount of funds and of debts due to the Country Branch of the society as per report of I2th January, 1821, was 033,784 37 The quota or requisition on the members for the year, 1821 a mounts to 13,803 59 052,587 96 The looses, 4*c. re ported due and un paid on the l2thJan were 041,990 03 Since the 12th of Jan. losses have happen ed amounting to a bout the sum or 22,600 00 -64,590 00 Leaving, without reference to the expenses, <^c. ot the insti tution, a probable deficiency of funds ot 012,002 06 Summary Statement of the condition of the funds of the Town Branch of the M.

Ag * ^ ^y To the Members of the Mutual Jlssur- : ance Society. IN compliance with the request of the spe-1 cial committee, named in the first of the j preceding resolutions, 1 take the liberty to remind the members nf the Mutual Assur* : ance Society against Fire on Buildings of the State of Virginia, that scarcely any ot the important business of the Society was completed at their last general meeting, and that it is therefore, in the highest degree,in teresting to both branches of the Society, that the general meeting, proposed to be held on the 2nd Monday in the next' month, should be as full as possible—-indeed, a ge neral meeting cannot he legally formed but by the attendance, of the members, as well of the toTrn as of the covntry branch; be sides wblie the report of the special commit tee will among other things suggest amend ments of the rul«° anH regulations of the branch particularly, ■■ ’ and such are the principles of the Institu tion, that the adoption of those amendments will inevitably affect the interest of the town branch also . It may not be improper here to Tfm ^ that the stated general meetings of me so ciety happening annually, during the ses sion of the General Assembly, those mem bers of the Society who have heretofore found it inconvenient to attend in person, have generally |failed to appoint proxies, knowing as they did that at such general meetings, they might be lawfully represen ted by (he senators or delegates of their re spective districts, cities, boroughs, or coun ties; hut absent members or subscribers can not be so represented at the general meet ing to be held in tbe next month -because, senators or delegates are authorised by the act ol assembly (passed the twenty third Ja nuary, 1800) to represent absent members of the Society then, and then only,4 when soever any general meeting of the said so ciety shall be holden during the session ol general assembly.” ft will therefore be indispensably necessary, that all members of the Society, (whether of the town or country branch) who may find it inconveni ent or be unable to attend in person, should appoint proxies according to tbe preceding form of a power of attorney, to represent them at the approaching general meeting. I will only add, that it i* with unfeigned pleasure, that I announce it to the members of the country branch, as the opinion ol the committee, that such alterations and amend ments may be made of the rules and regula tions ol the Society, as will unquestionably ensure to that branch the highest prosperi ty; and finally the complete success confi dently anticipated by its lriends, when in the year 1806 they resolved on a separation trom the towns. „ ALEX.
