This ledger contains 432 pages on blue paper. This volume was the result of an effort to put some order in the Society's records dating from 1825 to 1862. Constitution, by-laws, correspondence, and minutes have been recopied, probably by the same person, from loose papers sometime after 1867 (see page 15 in ledger 3).
Pages 100 to 154 are blank. A notation on page 99 indicates that the Society proceedings have been lost from 1832 to 1839. Some entries don't have any date. Pages 416-417 record 1912 and 1934 meetings which have also been copied in ledger 3.
This ledger also contains 432 pages, but of white paper. The proceedings were handwritten from 1863 to 1905, then partly typed until 1950. The typewritten pages as well as brochures and lists have been glued on the volume pages.
Lists of active members, a list of estates where they met and their owners, and an index are found at the end of this ledger.
Undated and anonymous 11 pages report on the profitability of agriculture on the Eastern Shore.
