The Class Meeting

Mon 15 Feb 1742: Many met together to consult on a proper method for discharging the public debt. And it was at length agreed, (1) that every member of the society who was able should contribute a penny a week; (2) that the whole society should be divided into little companies or classes, about twelve in each class; and (3) that one person in each class should receive the contribution of the rest, and bring it in to the stewards weekly.
