REPORT Of the Proceedings of the Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, at its first general Meeting, on the 15th of March, 1823. Printed by order of the Council.
The first general Meeting of the Asiatic Society, having, in the original Prospectus, been fixed for the 15th of March, the Committee appointed for making the necessary arrangements, took measures to carry that intention into effect. Under the authority of a meeting of original members, a circular letter was issued, by which the general Meeting was convened. The letter communicated to the members the business in which the meeting, on this day, would be engaged, being chiefly the election of a council, and officers, for the future administration of the affairs of the Society. Some other points likewise, that were to be brought before the meeting, were noticed in the circular letter, in order to put the members distinctly in possession of all the topics that were to come under their consideration.
The meeting, accordingly, took place, at the Thatched House, St. James's Street.
Henry Thomas Colebrooke, Esq., was called to the chair.
With a view to the ballot, Henry St. George Tucker, Esq., and W. H. Trant, Esq., were nominated scrutineers.
Before the ballot commenced, the chairman desired leave to address the meeting : he delivered a discourse, in which he developed the views of the Society, and the purposes for which it was instituted. This discourse having been received, with
marked approbation, by the meeting, it was moved that it should be printed; and, likewise, that the thanks of the meeting should be given to the chairman : which propositions, being respectively seconded, were adopted unanimously by the meeting.
The chairman proceeded to announce to the meeting, that His Majesty, King George the Fourth, had been graciously pleased to declare himself Patron of the Asiatic Society;
Farther, that the Most Noble the Marquis Wellesley, and the Most Noble the Marquis of Hastings, were nominated VicePatrons ;
And lastly, that the President of the Board of Commissioners for the Affairs of India, for the time being, would always be a Vice-Patron.
The following resolutions were next proposed by the chairman, and approved by the meeting :
I. That the Society be called, The Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
II. That the designation of the members of the Society be M.A.S. Member of the Asiatic Society.
III. That the meeting do empower the council, as soon as it shall have been elected, to frame regulations, by which, when sanctioned by the Society, and its general meetings, the Society is in future to be governed.
IV. That the council be authorised to take such steps, or make such arrangements, as they may deem advisable, to provide a suitable place for the Society's meeting.
V. That the council be authorised to take such steps as may be requisite, to obtain a Charter of Incorporation, as early as they may find it expedient and practicable.
VI. That the next general meeting be held on Saturday, the 19th of April, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
The chairman congratulated the meeting on the promising aspect which the Society bore, stating, that the number of members already entered on its list, exceeded 300.
The chairman having concluded, the ballot opened, and was carried on till four o'clock, as had been previously fixed, when, being closed, the lists were examined by the scrutineers. It was then declared from the chair, that the following twenty-five inembers had been elected to form the council, viz.:
Dukes of Somerset, and Buckingham, Marquis of Lansdowne, Earl of Aberdeen, Rt. Hon. C. W. Wynn, Rt. Hon. Sir G. Ouseley, Bart., Rt. Hon. J. Sullivan, Sir G. T. Staunton, Bart., Sir E. H. East, Bart., Sir J. Malcolm, G.C.B., Sir A. Johnston, Knight, Sir J. Mackintosh, Knight, J. Alexander,
