The Institution of Naval Architects

    Article metrics


    THE summer meeting of the Institution of Naval Architects has been held this year in Paris, and has proved one of the most successful gatherings of the kind it has ever been our good fortune to attend. It had become known amongst members for some time past that a very strong Reception Committee had been formed, consisting of many French gentlemen, eminent both in the scientific and naval world. A large part of the week devoted to the meeting was given up to purely pleasure excursions and entertainments. Of these it is not within our province to speak, but it would be ungracious on the part of any English journal, dealing with the meeting in any way, not to say a word in recognition of the generous hospitality so lavishly displayed by all those connected with the organisation of the programme in France.
