|Title||Paper, 'President's Address' by the Treasurer of the Royal Society|
|Description||The Treasurer writes: 'The absence of our President [Thomas Henry Huxley] from his post today must of necessity cast a certain amount of gloom over the proceedings at this our anniversary meeting; and, personally, I feel additional regret that it devolves upon me, as your Senior Vice-President and Treasurer, to be the unworthy occupant of the Chair on the present occasion. My regret at the absence of the President is, however, in one respect tempered by a strong hope, in which, I am sure, that you will all fervently join, that the timely retirement from arduous work which has been enforced upon him by his medical advisers may produce those beneficial results which we all so cordially desire, and that we may ere long again see among us our accomplished and valued President in renewed health and strength.' Likely written by Frederick John Owen Evans, Vice-President of the Society 1884-1885.|
