John Edward Aloysius Steggall explained that the mathematical papers of the late Dr McCowan had been handed over to him "for examination with a view to their ultimate publication". It was agreed that Professor Steggall should consult with George Alexander Gibson. The society hoped that some of Dr McCowan's papers could first of all be published in the Proceedings.

George Duthie gave notice of a motion as to the sum to be drawn annually from Life-Membership subscriptions.
