Quarterly and monthly meetings are directed to furnish this meeting annually with an account of the decease of such of their members in the station of ministers or elders, as may have taken place within the year. And if any monthly meeting should under solid consideration, believe it necessary to prepare a memorial concerning any deceased Friend who had been a member thereof, it is to go to the respective quarterly meeting, where, being duly weighed and agreed to, it is then to be forwarded to the meeting for sufferings, for inspection and approbation, previous to its being laid before this meeting. -- 1755, 1786.
