Abstract

THE Birmingham Induction on February 13th was in every way satisfactory to those who participated. A writer in our Letters on Our Affairs has given in brief the substance of the event. It fulfilled the anticipations we made in our last number the attendance was really representative and there was an agreeable meeting of many of Mr. Cashmore's older and younger contemporaries, as well as a large concourse of his neighbours, to share in the dignified ceremony in which Dr. Esdaile initiated the President into his office. We ventured last month to refer to the quality of the retiring President's occasional speeches. That at Birmingham was a masterpiece of apparently unstudied ceremonial speechmaking. No doubt it will be available elsewhere. Those who spokefrom the Lord Mayor, who chaired the meeting, to Mr. Duncan Gray, who returned thanks for the Lord Mayor's hospitality rose to an occasion on which all was pleasant and unjarred by any slip or inharmonious note. It was a happy augury for the year to come.
