The Support of the Association
The Support of the Association.
The income of the Association is rather less than that of last year and only about three-fourths of what it was several years ago. Its operations have been, in consequence, somewhat restricted, and this year ends with a debit balance. The Committee have, however, to thank those kind friends who have encouraged their exertions. A letter from one of these, in particular, may be here quoted. He writes that "the Howard Association has done more for the benefit of society than perhaps any other in the land, in proportion to the money at its command," and he encloses £5 as an annual subscription.
The few hundred pounds which constitute the annual income of the Association have however again enabled the Committee to carry on an extensive cosmopolitan, as well as home advocacy, of their several objects.
