The American-Irish Historical Society. OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL, Eventne Tripune, Pawtucket, R. I, Nov. 1, 1897. Dear Str: You are hereby notified that the third meeting of the American-Irish Historical Society will be held at Young’s Hotel, Boston, Mass.,on Tuesday evening, November 16, 1897. There will be a business session of the society at 6.30 p. M., followed, at 7.30 o’clock, by a dinner and post-prandial exercises of an interesting nature. The price of dinner tickets has been placed at $2.00 each. They are now ready. The after-dinner features will include: (1) An address by the presiding officer. (2) The reading of letters from distinguished members of the society unable to be present. (8) A paper by Mr. Dennis Harvey Sheahan, of Providence, R. L, (ex-clerk of the Rhode Island House of Representatives), on “The Need of an Organization Such as the A. I. H.S., and Its Scope.” (4) A congratulatory letter from His Excellency Elisha Dyer, Governor of Rhode Island. (5) An address by Mr. John Mackinnon Robertson, of London, author of “The Saxon and the Celt.” (6) A communication to the society from Hon. Joseph T. Lawless, Secretary of State, Virginia. (7) A paper on “ The O’Briens of Machias, in the Revolution,” by Mr. H. W. Chaplin, of Boston, Mass., who is a descendant of the O’Briens. Invitations to attend the dinner have been extended Rear Admiral Belknap, U.S. N.; Dr. John Sullivan, a descendant of Gen. John Sullivan of the Revolution, and President Andrews of Brown University. President Andrews’ work on American history is. well known, and his patriotic address, recently before the Twentieth Century Club will-not soon be forgotten. It is earnestly desired that every member of the society who can possibly be present at the coming meeting will attend and help make the event the great success it so richly deserves. If each member attending, will bring with him at least one gentleman as his personal guest it will add eclat to the occasion and may be the means of acquiring a'large number of very desirable new members for the society. In order that proper arrangements can be made with the hotel people for dinner, it is necessary for us to know just how many members and guests are likely to be present. To this end, therefore, | would be pleased to hear from each member at the earliest possible moment. Fraternally, and in bebalf of the Executive Council of the Society, THOMAS HAMILTON MURRAY, Secretary- General.
