Members of the Society came to Quincy and Tallahassee from Miami, from Pensacola, from Tampa, from Jacksonville, and between, for the annual meeting on March 27-29. In addition to our many local members, more than forty came from a distance, so in this respect the meeting was the most successful ever held. Nor have the number and the quality of the papers read ever been surpassed. So this meeting takes its place with the one or two most notable ones of other years, and the members throughout the State who were not there join with those who came in recording their appreciation and their gratitude to our hosts the Quincy Historical Society and the Tallahassee Historical Society, and to our president Horace Calvin Curry and to Kathryn T. Abbey.
