The Presidential Address delivered at the Fifty-eighth Annual Meeting of the Medico-Psychological Association, held in London on the 27th July, 1899

  • James Beveridge Spence
Extract

It was with many misgivings as to my own ability to fill to your satisfaction—to say nothing of my own—the distinguished position which I to-day so unworthily occupy that I accepted more than a year ago the generous and under any circumstance gratifying nomination of the Council, and I have to-day to thank the Association for placing upon that nomination the seal of its approval by electing me at the last annual meeting to occupy the position which has been held with advantage to this great Society and honour to themselves by men of whom I may say without any pride-aping humility that I feel how inadequate any efforts of mine must appear when compared with the work which many of my predecessors in office have done and are doing on behalf of science in general and of this learned Society in particular. I trust, however, to make up by the brevity. of my remarks this afternoon for some of my deficiencies, and pray you in judging my words and actions to-day and during the time I may be permitted to preside over your meetings to take the kindly will for the imperfect deed, and to believe that it is my earnest desire to merit your commendation and to maintain in every way in my power the dignity of the position which I now hold by your favour.
