Wesley Historical Society - NZ Proceedings up to 1940

The 4-page inserts were published with the U.K. proceedings. Sometimes these had a title page and occasionally, a list of members. Until June 1934 they were given a N.Z. number and date but subsequently were allocated the number of the U.K. issue they accompanied. They were generally distributed here 6 months after the U.K. date of publication.
