AFFAIRS OF THE ASSOCIATION.
This number of THE QUARTERLY has been ,somewhat delayed,
partly to give the printers time to receive some new matrices, re-
cently ordered, and partly by reason of special difficulties that have
been encountered in the editorial work. The effort has been made
to get lout each number early in the month in which it is due, but
unforeseen hindrances have arisen in nearly every instance. Energy
and experience will doubtless secure the desired punctuality by
and by. The management of THE QUARTERLY has a certain stock
of the first of these necessary qualities, and is rapidly securing more
of the second. Meanwhile, let the members 'be patient.
Some complaints are made of failure to receive THE QUARTERLY.
This can hardly be due to -any fault in the mailing arrangements at
the -office; but whenever it happens one of the secretaries should be
notified, and the matter shall then have such rectification as may
be possible.
Experience with THE QUARTERLY has thus far shown that it is
not likely to want for material. More is now offered than can possi-
bly be published. And this suggests one thing that it would be
well for those who would be contributors to remember. If one
writes about historical facts of which he has no immediate knowl-
edge, he should, in order to satisfy those readers whose commenda-
tion is most desirable, always indicate the sources of his informa-
tion.
