of the Society with the view of making its work more widely known, not only at home, but throughout the British Empire, and also in the United States of America ; and it is hoped that their appeal may be crowned with some measure of success in the near future.
The amount received in subscriptions during the year was £376 19s.— £4 4s. more than in 191 9. Interest on investments and on money on deposit amounted to £35 13s. 10d. ; and the income of the Society from all sources to £531 15s. 8d. It is a matter for congratulation that sales of the Society's publications realized £90 16s. 9d., as against £32 0s. 11d. in 1919 ; and it is hoped that the revenue from this source may during the year 1921 considerably exceed the pre-war level. Folk-Lore cost £316 8s. 2d., as against £243 0s. 3d. The Society's invest- ments remain unchanged, but their value, as at December 31, 1920, was £615, as against £695 on the 31st December, 1919. The balance to the credit of the Society, however, has fallen only £43 3s. od., viz. from £1010 os. 9d. to £966 17s. 9d., so that the financial position is perfectly sound.
