The President, in his address at the opening of the present session, referred in a few apt and sympathetic words to the loss we had sustained in the death, of our distinguished member, Dr. Hancock. But he and others have thought that in this society, of which Hancock was the founder, some fuller memorial notice?some detailed account of his life and labours ought to be given, and they expressed a wish that I, as one of his oldest and most intimate friends, should undertake the task of preparing it. This I have gladly done; I only regret my inability to accomplish it in a manner worthy of the man we desire to honour. I will at least try to state accurately the main facts of his personal history, to recall some of his most important labours, and to give the impression of his character which our long and familiar intercourse has left upon my mind.
