' It is well known that the President of an efficiently run Institution does not take office unprepared. I cannot therefore claim that the great honour that you have done me is unexpected, but I can quite truthfully say that my appreciation is accompanied and enhanced by some feeling of surprise. This is not because it is unusual for one who is not a practising structural engineer to become President, for the Institution has liberal and catholic traditions in this respect. It comes from personal reasons that I find it difficult to define, but which I think former Presidents will appreciate. '
