We have to regret, through the continued, depression in trade, and through members having left the town, that the funds show some diminution. On the other hand, however, our subscribers have not decreased, which latter fact is gratifying, inasmuch as it tends to prove that the interest in the Anglo-Jewish Association does not flag, and that with a revival of trade we may hope for a better result, pecuniarily and otherwise, in the future.
We have the satisfaction of placing on record, that the philanthropic working of the Anglo-Jewish Association has been fully recognised, and in a tangible form, by a gentleman so high in authority as the Right Honourable Mr. Justice Lush, who this year, through the solicitation of our Honorary Secretary, Mr. Henry Worms, has honoured our Branch by becoming one of its annual subscribers. A copy of a letter and resolution forwarded by the Executive of the Branch to the learned Judge on that pleasing event, and the gratifying reply received thereto, will be found appended.
The Council of this Branch, on the occasion of the election of Baron Henry de Worms, the President of the Anglo-Jewish Association, as M.P. for Greenwich, passed a unanimous vote congratulating him on that event.
We have read, with much satisfaction accounts both of the labours of the parent body during the past year, and of the work they intend, doing in the future in the interest of our brethren in the Eastern Principalities.
