Mr Immediate Past President, ladies and gentlemen: on this, the first Ordinary Meeting of your Institution at which I have the honour to serve as your President, I desire, firstly, to thank you for the honour you have given me in making me, for 1 year, your President, and secondly to say how sensible I am of my inadequacy to fulfil the duties that devolve on me. However, I promise you I shall do my best to serve and shall appreciate all the help that is available from every quarter. J.A. Waller
