The Medico-Psychological Association. the President's Address for 1873

  • T. Harrington Tuke

Gentlemen,—I must again express my deep sense of the distinction conferred upon me in my election as your President. It is a great honour to occupy a place which has been held by so many eminent men, masters in mental philosophy, distinguished in science, and in literature, taken in its wider sense, as well as in that strictly medical. I am fully conscious of inability to follow them with equal steps, but supported by some of you, whom I am privileged to call my friends, and by many other valued associates, I venture to hope that your interests will not suffer in my hands. I say this, reckoning confidently on the ready help which the less advanced among us have always received from the honoured heads of our Association; one, especially, is present to my mind, by whose friendly encouragement many probationers have been induced to put forth their powers for the advancement of mental science. Distinguished in medicine, in science, and in general literature, the Founder of our Journal, and as its Editor for many years, ever courteous, considerate, and just, no one has done more for the best and highest interests and objects of this Association, than our esteemed colleague and former President, Dr. Bucknill.
