To the Editor:  I prefer Chicago as the location and home of our journal for one good reason, in addition to the many others already stated by numerous correspondents. I believe the Eastern members of our profession are tainted with heretical opinions as to the propriety and practicability of our "Code of Medical Ethics" as a guide to the highest honor and truest success of the profession. Witness the heterodoxy through which we have only recently passed and fresh in the minds of all.This reflection is not meant to impugn the characters of Eastern members generally—simply as a statement of a deplorable fact, as to a few in high places.Chillicothe, O., Feb. 3, 1891.
