BUILDING FUND. Sir,-I beg to enclose cheque. . . . I feel sure yod should meet with a very ready response from ever member. The scheme is a highly excellent one. Might I also say in passing how greatly the work of the Institution is appreciated through the length and breadth of the land. Coming in touch, as I do, with some of the largest engineering works in various parts of Great Britain frequently each year, meeting in the course of my daily labours most of the Municipal engineers and public works Contractors in this country, I have an exceptional opportunity of learning the general opinions of the Building and Civil Engineering World; and wherever I go at every point of the compass, the recent growth and active policy of the Institution is commented upon with both surprise and pleasure. More especially is this so with the rising generation of those engaged in structural work -the young are always for progress. The activities of our Council and Committees with regard to Registration and admission by examination seem to have created widespread interest and gratification in particular, and if only I could voice the various expressions which have been made to me not only by members, but by the general public, I feel sure those gentlemen who have given their services so generously in the different offices, and the hard-working official staff, would feel in some small measure repaid for their labours. If you deem fit, you are at liberty to publish this letter.-Yours, &C., R. D’ARCY SWAINSON
