PROPOSED
by Mr C Hutton Coates

That as the Manuscript containing the list of Captains and Lieutenants is nearly full, steps be taken when it is full, to place it in the safe custody of the York Museum Authorities, and that, if possible, a photographic copy of the above be procured, and handed on with the Silver Arrow and new Manuscript to the Captain for the time being.

AMENDMENT
by Mr C Pownall

That it be deposited with the Royal Toxophilite Society, that being the only museum devoted to Archery, as a perpetual loan.

After some discussion by the Archers assembled it was RESOLVED that the Manuscript be placed in a museum, and that the Captain should enquire whether the Royal Toxophilite Society would accept it.

The Comittee of the Royal Toxophilite Society met on Oct 24 and it was carried nem. con that 'The Comittee having considered the suggestion of the Scorton Arrow authorities that their scroll should be deposited with the Society are agreeable to accept it, if the Scorton Arrow Authorities will provide a stand to be approved by the R.T.S. in order that the scroll may be exhibited during the shooting season, the Society accepting no responsibility for its custody.'

In answer to a similar enquiry the York Museum authorities write:- Our Museum does not appear to be suitable for the exhibition of your Rules and would advise that the Royal Toxophilite Society would be better.
