Cou’m's and 00., Strand. 10, Lancaster Place, and by m Bunkers, ADDRESS. _§_ THE Council of the GUILD on LITERATURE AND ART submit the following pages to their brethren and to the public, in the confidence that the objects they have in View will be respected, and that the means by which it is sought to attain them will be at once justly and generously examined. The objects of the Society are these :——-To encourage Life and Annuity Assurance among its members on more favourable terms than such insurers could obtain without its aid; to assist its members in temporary distress to pay their premiums when they become due ,' to establish a Provident Sickness Fund; to endow an Institution which shall have at its disposal certain resi— dences and annuities, to which only members (and, as to annuities, only the widows of members) shall be eligible to be elected; which shall not be an Institution of an eleemosynary character, but with which some popular service shall be associated, and from which the public shall derive educational advantages. The Council, having these ends in view, have endea- 6 vourcd to make the Rules and Tables so plain as that they shall express themselves. They have been framed with a careful desire to combine the experience of the best existing Institutions, and to avoid all hazardous enterprise, however promising. In adhering to the original intention of by no means erecting the Guild into a new and separate Life Assurance Office, the Council have been confirmed by the best practical advice. It is hoped that the eligibility of members is defined in terms not inconsistent with the comprehensive spirit of the Arts; and also that, in the division of the Society’s Funds, and the prospective establishment of the Guild Institution, it will be seen that the Association is content to pursue its highest object through a course of steady and patient usefulness. The merits of such a scheme as that which is now propounded, can only be tested by a calm inquiry into the soundness of its details, and the good results that may come of them. Forbearing to appeal to the feelings either of their own order or of the public, the Council submit the result of their best consideration to both. 10, LimeAsrrm PLACE, October 10, 1853. >—c\v cru- c r—lmco-u RULES. _*_. I.——NAME. It having been determined to establish a society under the 48th section of the act of Parliament entitled, An Act to Consolidate and Amend the Laws relating to Friendly Societies (13 and 14 Victoria cap. 115). 1. It has been also determined that the Association shall be called The Guild of Literature and Art. IL—PLACE OF BUSINESS. 2, That the business of the society shall he Conducted, for the present, at Wellington Chambers, No. 10, Lancaster Place, Strand, in the County of Middlcscx. III.—MEMBERS. 3. That the members of the society shall consist of elected members and honorary members. 4. Elected Members.——Uantlidates for election into the society must be followers of literature as a profession ; hat is to say, writers of either sex, of books not being trans» lations, (translations from the aneientand Eastern languages excepted), and writers in periodicals. Also writers of dramatic and other theatrical pieces, not being translations or adaptations from any foreign language. The right of exclusion in any individual case is reserved to the council ; but, if exercised, the reason for its exercise sliallbe expressly 8 stated in the minutes of the day. Also, followers of Art as a profession; that is to say, exhibitors of either sex, of works of original design in painting or scupture, or architecture at any public exhibition in the United Kingdom ; designers of approved merit for engravers, and engravers. The right of exclusion in any individual case is reserved to the council ; but, if exercised, the reason of its exercise shall he expressly stated in the minutes of the day. It is imperative that candidates included in these definitions, unless assured in other oilices before Christmas, 1853, shall effect assurances through this society in one or other of the three classes enumerated. In the event of candidates being so assured elsewhere, they must subscribe to The Guild Provident Sickness Fund. The minimum of assurance to qualify a candidate for election is fixed at £100. Members not assured through this society shall produce their receipts of premiums paid, whenever called upon by the council to do so. All members allowing their policies to lapse from non-payment of premiums, shall forfeit by such failure all claim to the benefits of the society, and shall cease to be members of it. The names of persons applying to become members to this society with a reference to at least one member of the Guild, shall he entered in :1. candidates’ book at least one month before the council proceed to election. Each candidate is required to pay, on being elected, an entrance fee ol‘two guineas. 5. [[olwrary lllcmbcrs shall consist of subscribers of not less than one guinea annually, and of donors of not less than ten guineas to the object of the society, without being par- tieipators in any of the pecuniary benefits it offers to elected members. They will, however, have the privilege of at— tendingr an annual meeting of the members of the Guild for the purpose of receiving a report of the year’s proceedings. Each honorary member will be further entitled to a free admission to any lectures or meetings for popular instruction that may take place under the direction of the Institution. Under the same conditions physicians not being,r subscribers or donors, whose gratuitous advice and assistance may be 9 granted in connexion with the Sickness Provident Fund, may also be appointed honorary members. IV.—OBJECTS. 6. That the Society shall carry out three objects ; Firstly, Life and Annuity Assurance; Secondly, Provision for its Elected Members duringr Sickness ; Thirdly, The Endowment of an Institution to be called “ The Guild Institution.” 7. Assurance—The Society will obtain Assurances on Lives, Assurances for securing deferred Annuities, and Assurances for Endowments at all ages, according to tables hereunto annexed (pp. 10', 17, and 18). Although all pro- posals for assurance in connexion with the Guild will be submitted to its secretary; and although all premiums will be paid through him; the Society itself will not assure Lives, Deferred Annuities, or Endowments; but will con- fide the whole management and responsibility of those branches of its business to The National Provident Insti- tution, as a mutual Assurance Office, the profits of which are divided among the Assurers. Upon such assurances the Guild will receive a commission of five per cent, without any cost to the Assurer; who could not, it is to be under- stood, obtain such allowance for himself or herself. This item of receipt will be carried to the credit of the Society, and a form a part of the general fund to be appropriated as hereafter-mentioned. 8. The Guild Provident Sickness Fund—The Society will receive payments from elected members, according to tables hereunto annexed (page 19), for provision in sickness, the ratio of such provision to be governed by the condition of this special fund at the time an invalided member may apply to receive it : no such member to be entitled to draw from the fund until he has subscribed to it two years; unless the sickness on account of which the claim is made shall have arisen from accident. 9. The Guild Institution—The Society Will at a future time, hereinafter specified, establish and endow an Institu- tion, having at its disposal annuities to which only members 10 (and as to annuities only, the widows of members) shall be admissible; of which the object will be to associate an honourable rest from arduous labours with the discharge of congenial duties in connexion with popular instruction. It will also erect a limited number of free residences, on land to he] resented for this purpose by the President of the Guild, and which will be occupied by the male annuitants elected on this foundation. V.-——FUNDS. 10. That the Society’s fund,* derivable from invested capital, from future donations and subscriptions, from members’ fees, from per centages on Life Policies, from Bequests, or from any other source, except contributions to the sickness fund, be divided into two equal portions,'the first to be called The Assurance and Provident Augmentation Fund ; the second to be called the Guild Institution Fund, subject to the exceptional condition to be stated. ll. Tire Assurance and Provident Augmentation Fund.— The first moiety of the Society’s Funds shall be appropriated to three objects ; Firstly, to render temporary assistance to members by way of loan without interest, towards the payment of their premiums of assurance when they them— selves shall he proved to be unable to meet those demands. Secondly, to aid payments similarly, to The Provident Sickness Fund. Thirdly, to allot once in every seven years all the Society’s residuary profits under these heads, in augmentation of the several advantages originally proposed to be secured by the tables of premiums. 12. Provident Sickness Fuml.——That the fund specially formed as a provision in case of sickness be kept distinct from the other funds of the Society and be self-supporting. That it be disbursed when claimed upon in such proportions (based upon the table set forth in page 19) as its condition will, at the time the claim is made, prudently warrant ; such allowance always being subject to increase out of the Augmen- tation Fund. , * Sec balance-sheet, page 15. 11 13. The Guild Institution Funrl.—The second moiety of the gu‘oss funds of the Society shall be carried for accumula- tion during the term of seven years (subject to the exceptional condition to be presently stated) to the credit of the Guild Institution proposed to be established as aforesaid.

Exceptional Condition.~—But if at any earlier period than seven years, the fund invested to the separate credit of the Guild Institution shall have attained the amount of four thousand pounds, then it shall become the duty of the council for the time being immediately to apply the interest of that sum to the purposes of the said Guild Institution ; and also to reconsider the aforesaid proportionate dispositions and investment of the Society’s fund ; always subject to their being restrained within the limits defined in section IV.
