Present. RWB JB Nixon, Bros. NWJ Haydon, Thos. Pretty, RM Wallace, members of Harmony, Riverdale, St John's and Alpha Lodges, respectively.

RWB Nixon took the Chair, and Bro. Haydon acted as Secretary, and outlined the reasons for calling the meeting and the prospects for success. Several letters of regret at absence were read from other members of the NMRS, of whom there are now about 150 in this city.
