6 MEETING IN NEWARK.

The Resolution was iinaniniously adopted.

The Society then took a recess until 2:45 F.M., to examine the
Lihrarv, and partake of a collation spread in one of the rooms.

On re-assembling, the Hox. Joel Parker, Governor of the
State, read a paper " On the early History of Monmouth County,
Xew Jersey, from its settlement to 1702," illustrated by extended
extracts from unpublished records and documents, giving it especial
interest and value. The source of most of this heretofore unused
matter, the original record book of Middletown commencing in 1667,
the Governor submitted for the inspection of the members. The
paper commanded the close attention of the audience, and at its close
ex-Mayor PEnDiE moved that the thanks of the Society be presented
to the Governor for his highly interesting and valuable contribution
to the history of the State, which on motion of Col. Swords,
was amended so as to embody a request for a copy to bo placed at
the disposa,] of the Society.

Mr. Duryee, after some complimentary remarks, expressed a hope
(which was cordially seconded by the members generally), that the
subject might be resumed at the next meeting, and the History
brought down to the Revolution.
