There is not much information known about this organization. The minute book begins in 1892, and ends in 1894, stating that the group had decided to form a new society rather than expand the Octagon. It is unknown whether this new society was formed, or what its name was, if so. The first minutes in the book state that the meetings "should not be formal, but free and easy affairs." The meetings consisted of presentations of various kinds, including poetry and other readings. The group was a mixed gender organization.
