On the fifth of this month our esteemed contemporary, the London Lancet, celebrated its seventy-eighth birthday by reprinting the leading editorial in the initial number of that journal. The first issue was dated October 5, 1823, and the present editors propose to reprint each week a selection from the corresponding number of seventy-eight years ago. It seems strange that in the pious city of London a weekly medical journal such as the Lancet should have appeared dated Sunday and not Saturday, but such is the fact, and for some months the issuing date was Sunday. If the selections to be made show the vast advance in medical knowledge in the last seventy-eight years they will certainly be interesting, if not instructive.
