REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS OF THE TRUSTEES OF

THE NATIONAL COUNCIL.1

INASMUCH as the trustees of the National Council, as such, can do business legally only in Connecticut, where their charter was obtained, they, for convenience of administration and in accordance with their by-laws and good, legal usage, have appointed themselves a board of directors, with power to hold meetings and do business when and where occasions may require, and have made it the duty of said directors to report for the trustees to the National Council.

At a meeting of the trustees Dec. 4, 1890, Cyrus Northrop was made a trustee in place of Caleb F. Gates deceased, and a committee was appointed to petition the General Assembly of Connecticut to amend the charter of the corporation so that “its capacity to receive and hold property shall be increased to the sum of five hundred thousand dollars.” Thus far the committee have not been able to discharge this duty, but are expected to give it attention as soon as is practicable.

We have two trusts, the Knowles' Fund and the special fund, whose objects are the same ministerial relief.
