1. Introduction

NEXT to a total lack of contributors and of subscribers nothing is more dreaded by an editor than that the organization he serves should establish a precedent that addresses from the chair and such-like speeches for an occasion should be published in his Journal. Knowing this both as an editor and as an ex-president of one of the Branch Societies of the International Psycho-Analytical Association (the British one) I have tried to avoid embarrassment to the editor and I hope to readers by removing from the addresses from the chair given in July, 1948, 1949 and 1950 all references to current events which do not have a general bearing, and am placing before the readers of this journal some reflections which, though based on the experience of only one Society, may perhaps have a little significance for all.
