To the Editor:
—As the Journal is looked to abroad as the exponent of American medicine, is it not likely that foreign medical boards will think that our Association approves of inferior medical colleges, when some of the very worst in the United States are given constant advertising space in the Journal, thus injuring all American diplomas? Having practiced for some years in a foreign country I know with what contempt the "Yankee" M.D. is held, and this is because of the shameful ignorance shown by most of our graduates who have left our shores seeking fame or fortune in foreign climes, and who, of course, were always from inferior colleges.Yours, etc.,
