The monthly evening meeting of the Fellows was held on Tuesday, the 12th June. F. Abbott, Esq., in the chair. -Mr. Abbott read some notes on the papers presented by him, showing the importance of preserving these old files of newspapers, as they were frequently found to be very valuable for reference. Among them were two ("Mercator, or Commerce Retrieved," 1712, and The Flying Post, or Post-Master, 1712) of considerable interest, from their being edited by Defoe. Mr. Abbott also read a list (from "Notes and Queries") of scarce publications enumerated in the Harleian catalogue at the British Museum, and not found elsewhere.
