MEMORIAL MEETING.

A meeting of the Society was held at the Mocatta Library on Tuesday, February 22, at eight o’clock. A large gathering assembled to do honour to the memory of Dr. Jacobs. The Rev. Dr. H. P. Stokes (President) and subsequently Mr. Gustave Tuck (Treasurer) occupied the chair. At the close of the addresses, a vote of thanks to the speakers was passed on the motion of Mr. Tuck.

Address by the President.

We have lately lost three distinguished scholars in the persons of Dr. Gross, Dr. Schechter, and Dr. Jacobs. The activities of Dr. Schechter only lightly touched Anglo-Jewish research, but nevertheless he found opportunity to contribute valuable papers on the subject to the Transactions of our Society and to other publications. Dr. Charles Gross was the author of a singularly accurate paper on the Jewish Exchequer, which appeared in the Papers of the Anglo-Jewish Historical Exhibition (1887).
