Papers and addresses of the 14th-15th meetings, 1894-95, were published in Proceedings of the meeting for 1898 which was called the 16th, as no meetings were held in 1896 and 1897; this system of numbering was continued through the [47th] 1929. The Report for 1930, however, is numbered 50th annniversary (instead of 48th meeting) and subsequent reports follow the new numbering.
