From now on we will regularly publish the report of the Society’s sessions.
We intended to do it starting from this current issue but the
excess of material forces us to postpone it to the next issue.
The members residing outside Paris and the corresponding members
will then be able to follow the works of the Society. As for now we restrain
ourselves by saying that despite Mr. Allan Kardec’s intention to resign to
the Presidency, expressed in his closing speech on the occasion of the administrative
renewal, he was unanimously reelected, minus one vote and
a blank ticket.
He considered it to be an inconvenience to pursue his resignation, before
such a flattering testimony. He has however accepted it conditionally,
with the reservation that he will resign from his functions as soon as the
Society has the condition to offer the presidency to someone whose name
and social position are such that it will elevate the Society to a higher level.
His wish was to dedicate all his time to the works and studies that he is
currently carrying out.
