To the Editor:
The comments on my letter in The Journal, August 6, are interesting. The correspondent of August 20 realizes the importance of legal regulation of registration of foreigners. The one who wrote August 27 is a Canadian and probably has some friends and countrymen who wish to register in the United States before long. He does injustice to the American physician. It is true that a great many old practitioners received complimentary recognition when state laws were first enacted. They could not well have been turned down, but to-day our recognized colleges are equal to those of other countries, and in some instances superior, as was shown by Dr. Honeij in The Journal, September 3, and our state examinations are so thorough that only well qualified men can pass. This, however, is not the fundamental question. We want recognition in other countries, which we will never have so
