About this memory

1904 – INSTITUTED 14TH JULY 1795; REMODELLED 14TH JANUARY 1851, AND JULY 1904″.

(A Poem within)
“Let not the vain boast of their wealth,
Which fadeth like a flower,
A moth may to his treasure fly,
And waste it in an hour.

Then lib’rally throw in your mite,
The needy to supply :
A due reward awaits you in
Endless eternity.

LEITH,
