To the Editor:
—If The Journal is to be removed from Chicago I am in favor of removing it to Pittsburgh. Next to Chicago Pittsburgh is the greatest railroad centre in the country, and this is a very important consideration in these times of blizzards and railroad obstructions; besides among our more than two hundred physicians, any one of whom is just as capable to edit a medical journal as any one of a like number of physicians in any other locality in the country, either North or South, East or West. But if The Journal cannot come to Pittsburgh, then I am in favor of it remaining in Chicago, for it was born, cradled and grew to be a man there, and there is where it ought to stay. It is also ably edited there, besides, Chicago is the most central place in the country. Transplanting sometimes does well,
