    Excerpt from Observations on the Rate of Mortality and Sickness Existing Amongst Friendly Societies: Particularised for Various Trades, Occupations, and Localities, With a Series of Tables, Shewing the Value of Annuities, Sick Gift, Assurance for Death, and Contributions to Be Paid Equivalent Thereto, Calculated From the Experience of the Members

    Some years have elapsed since it was first attempted to obtain statistical information from the Lodges of the Manchester Unity. As might have been expected, every proposition was at first strenuously resisted, which had for its object the attainment of such information as alone could be relied upon as a safe guide to the successful financial management of so vast a body; the leaders of which were anxious to secure its permanent stability, as a Provident Association, by the application of every measure which the experience of the Society itself might demon~ strate to be necessary to insure its safety.

    At length the unanswerable arguments advanced by those desirous of profiting by past experience prevailed, and in the year 1846 it was determined that we should no longer decline to understand our true position, but that we should unhesitatingly avail our selves of the advantages we possessed of acquiring information so practically valuable, upon a subject of the deepest interest to those whose position in life rendered it necessary that they should make some provision to mitigate the consequences arising from the loss of employment through sickness, and to ward off, as far as possible, that poverty which is too frequently the companion of declining years. Returns of the most ample kind for the years 1846-7-8 were required from all the Lodges composing the Unity; and thus was obtained all the informa tion desirable to be possessed, relative to the Sickness and Mortality experienced by the Members of the Manchester Unity. From these returns, the Tables in this Work have been prepared.

    It may be necessary to explain that the results thus shown were intended, in the first instance, for the use of the Members only, many of whom being unacquainted with the value of decimal fractions, the approximate values have been given in whole numbers.
