To the Tract Association of Friends, in New-York.
The Committee of Management, appointed in 1823,
REPORT: That all their stated meetings have been duly held, except one; and, that on an average, two-thirds of their number have attended.
During the past year, the Committee have selected and published the following two new Tracts; namely,
No. 26. On the Advantages of the
3,000 No. 27. The Sick Man's Friend........3,000
And have re-published the following ten :No. 1. Thoughts on the Importance of Religion
• 1,000 No. 8. On Ardent Spirits
.. 1,000 No. 9. On Self-Examination...
No. 16. On the Right Employment of Time
•1,500 No. 17. Brief Hints to Parents on the
Subject of Education.... • 2,500 No. 20. On Troubles of our own Making, 1,500 No. 24. On Self-Knowledge
..1,000 No. 25. A Serious and Earnest Expostulation
20,500 These, together with the number be
fore published, namely, ....104,500 Make the total number of Tracts pub
lished by the Association........125,000
Nos. 1, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 24, and 25, are stereotyped.
The Committee have received, during the past year, donations and annual dues to the amount of $178 62 cents; and a balance of $63 95 cents remained in the Treasury last year. They have drawn on the Treasury on account of the abovementioned Tracts, and of several bills that had not been rendered the time of the last report, to the amount of $269 84 cents. Thus it will appear, that, in the sum of 827 27 cents, they have anticipated the dues for 1824, which are now payable. The Treasurer's accounts have been examined, and
are found to be correct; he being in advance to the Association for the last mentioned sum.
The several Tracts, now published, being sufficient to form a convenient volume, the Committee have reserved a few copies of each number, that they may be able to furnish them bound, to those who may wish to preserve them in their libraries.
Copies of the bound volume have been forwarded to the Tract Associations of Friends, in London, and in Ireland, from each of which, we had received a similar present, accompanied by a friendly letter.
The Committee believe that their labours have been, and will continue to be, serviceable ; they therefore regret that their means are so very limited, and, particularly, that they are not able to keep a constant supply of the several Tracts already published.
The Tracts remaining on hand are deposited at Mahlon Day's Book-store, 372, Pearl-street.
On behalf of the Committee, by
Robert F. Mott, Clerk.
