The JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION began its new year with an increased number of pages, and proposes to continue to furnish the same amount of reading pages throughout the year, thus putting it a safe distance ahead of all its American contemporaries. . . .
As for the JOURNAL, its work in the past speaks for itself, and its growth in the future will depend upon the support and encouragement received from the members of the ASSOCIATION, subscribers and contributors. At no time has its prospects seemed brighter; at no time did it seem to meet more closely the views of its founders. That it is capable of still further improvement, no one doubts, as the moment it ceases to improve, then will it begin to decay.
