Excerpt from Proceedings, Constitution, by-Laws, List of Members, &C: Of the Surveyors Association of West New Jersey

I suppose that one of the subjects that will claim your considera tion is, that Surveyors may receive for their labor a fair compensa tion, which any customary price that I have known does not give them. Your united action on this may greatly aid their being more suitably recompensed.

The difficulties experienced in the practical branch of the subject, in tracing old lines, and in which not only the Surveyors, but the community at large are deeply interested, will, I doubt not, claim and receive your serious consideration, to see whether there can not be devised some method by which this difficulty shall be much abated, if not in the progress of time wholly removed. I suppose it will be admitted by all Surveyors, that much the larger portion of these difficulties arises from the angles of the survey. Referring to the magnetical meridian, which is constantly changing its place, and not in a constant ratio, rendering it difficult, if not in many cases impossible, to know what variation of the needle should be allowed.

In my intercourse with a number of eminent mathematicians of our country, I have discussed this subject, have found them uniformly of one mind, that surveyors should return the angle ofa true meridian Zine, instead of the magnetical one, which would give a constant angle instead of a variable one.
