To the Editor:  As a member of the A. M. A. I am decidedly opposed to the removal of The Journal to Washington, or to any other point at present.

To permanently locate the annual meeting somewhere in the East or South, would be practically inviting our brethren on the Pacific slope to withdraw, which they would probably do.I vote to let The Journal remain in Chicago until after the Columbian exposition at least, and let special inducements be offered all visiting physicians in good standing to visit the editor and subscribe for The Journal.I have no fault to find with the present, or past, management of The Journal.Blakesburg, Iowa,
