Clarksburg, W. Va., Dec. 21, 1897.

To the Editor:  —In case a physician who is in good standing in his State medical society moves his location to a town in a neighboring county of the same State, in accordance with social or professional ethics, who is expected to first extend courtesies in the way of friendly calls, the new-comer or his older established professional brethren?Very respectfully,

Answer:  Where a physician moves into a neighborhood, courtesy demands that his brother practitioners should call on him within a reasonable time and give him the right hand of fellowship.
