The treasurer's report showed that one Life-membership subscription had been received to the recently established "Capital Account" and that after withdrawing from this the annual subscription of 7/6 and adding it to the Cash account, there was a balance in favour of the society's Capital account of 4/18/6. This was partly owing to a donation of 1/5/0 from George Duthie.
166 annual subscriptions had been received and 6/11/8 had been received from the sale of the Proceedings. There was a balance on the Cash account in favour of the society of 32/14/0 (1/2), and this added to the Capital account, left the society with a total balance of 37/12/6 (1/2).

Robert Franklin Muirhead suggested that it should be possible to pay triannual subscriptions of a guinea, payable in advance, in place of the annual subscription of 7/6.
