Auckland Anti-Poverty Society

Under the Honorary Presidency of

Sir George Grey, K.C.B.

Auckland Anti-Poverty Society

"He's true to God who's true to man. Where'er a wrong is done

To the humblest, or the weakest, 'neath the all-beholding sun.

That wrong is also done to us; and they are slaves most base Whose love of right is for themselves, and not for all the race."


1.The Society shall be called the Auckland Anti-Poverty Society.
2.The object of the Society shall be to spread by such peaceable and lawful means as may be found most desirable and efficient, a knowledge of the truth that God has made provision for the needs of all men during their residence upon earth, and that involuntary poverty is the result of the human laws that allow individuals to claim as private property that which the Creator has provided for the use of all, and by every constitutional means to wage an active warfare against the conditions that in spite of the advance in the powers of production condemn so many to degrading poverty, and foster vice, crime, and greed.
3.The means to be employed in attaining these objects shall be lectures, debates, readings, distribution of tracts and pamphlets, and such other means as may be devised.
4.The Society shall consist of Members paying a subscription of 2s 6d, and endorsing the objects of the Society.
5.The affairs of the Society shall be managed by a Committee, consisting of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Five Members, with power to add to their number.
6.The Society shall meet on the third Tuesday in each month, at 7.30 p.m; unless otherwise ordered.

Adam Kelly,

Park Road,

Vice-President. G. G. Platt,

Mount Eden, Secretary.
