Some Lessons From Practical Experience

My subject is Some Lessons from Practical Experience, with special reference to Structural Work on Railways, and is intended chiefly for the younger members of the Institution. I am at a loss to know who is responsible for the title, the Literature Committee, or our very energetic and esteemed Secretary. I certainly did not choose the title, or elect to read a paper on this or any other subject; and I have been heard so often during the past three or four years, as President or otherwise, that I should have felt more happy and comfortable to have kept in the background for some considerable time yet.
