The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 57

Mr. F. Young:*

Mr. F. Young:*

Perhaps I may be allowed to say a word or two. I did not intend to take any part in the discussion on the present occasion; but as my name has been prominently mentioned in connection with the resolution, I may say that I think the suggestion of Mr. Albert Grey is a most admirable one, and I shall rejoice very much to have Mr. Forster to preside over us. (Hear, hear.) I shall be most happy to render any assistance in my power in carrying out the work of this great conference, either as deputy-chairman when Mr. Forster is unable to attend, or in any other way. (Hear, hear.) It should be perfectly understood that this Committee is not intended to have any power to formulate a scheme. It is intended simply to organise the Society, and to suggest something to a future conference, which it will be for that conference either to accept or reject. I hope you will quite understand that I cordially agree to the proposition of Mr. Albert Grey. (Hear, hear.)
