Having accomplished all that he had hoped or expected to accomplish when he accepted the editorship of The Journal of the American Medical Association in 1883, and feeling the necessity for diminishing his responsibilities and constant work, the Editor of The Journal tendered his resignation to the Board of Trustees in the latter part of June last, the same to take effect on the 31st day of December, 1888. At a special meeting of the Board of Trustees held in Chicago, Nov. 9 and 10, 1888, the resignation was accepted, and John B. Hamilton, M.D., Supervising Surgeon-General of the Marine Hospital Service, and late Secretary-General of the Ninth International Medical Congress, was chosen unanimously to fill the place. He will enter upon the discharge of his editorial duties January 1, 1889. We trust he will have a long and prosperous editorial career.
