Description

Excerpt from Journal of the Transactions of the Victoria Institute, or Philosophical Society of Great Britain, 1914, Vol. 46 Chapter of Genesis the lessons it was originally designed to teach, lessons necessary for all men and independent of niceties of translation, and unaffected by any progress of Science. In the field of Pure Science, Dr. Sydney Chapman presented a most important paper on the Number and Total Light of the Stars, and Dr. Pinches, in the department of Assyriology, gave a summary of the latest discoveries in Babylonia. The Institute was indebted for the Annual Address to Colonel Sir Charles M. Watson, whose illustrated lecture, on Jerusalem Past and Present, followed most appropriately Mr. Arthur W. Sutton's address in the previous year on Suez to Sinai. To the writers of these papers, which have sustained the high standard of interest and importance of previous Volumes of the Transactions, the hearty thanks of the Council are tendered, and also to those who have taken part in the discussions. Since January five new members and 27 new associates have been elected. During the last two or three years there has been a marked increase in the attendances: this increase has been fully sustained during the past Session, and the Council desire to announce that they have removed their offices to 1, Central Buildings, Westminster, s.w., where they have been able to make more suitable arrangements to provide for this increased attendance.
