—In another column of this issue of The Journal will be found an important official letter from the Secretary of the Treasury of the U. S., answering the many questions heretofore asked in reference to how far members of the International Medical Congress to convene in Washington, September 5, 1887, coming from other countries, could bring with them instruments, books, maps, or other materials to be used for illustrations in the work of the Congress, free from revenue taxes. Our foreign exchanges would confer a favor by calling the attention of their readers to the facts stated in the letter.
