To the Editor:
—It is a matter of no urgent importance to the readers of The Journal whether it be published in Chicago or in Washington, unless it can be proven that it can be made a better journal in Washingtonthan it can in Chicago. The members of the Association estimate The Journal by its merits and hold the Editors and Publishers responsible for its character. It should be left with them to determine where it would be most convenient for them to do the work and do it best. When the National Government makes liberal appropriations for the establishing of a National Medical Institute, and makes provisions for professorships by which experimental research can be conducted; where hospitals, libraries, museums and other necessary helps are provided by the government, as is done in some other countries; then I say move to Washington.Indianapolis, Ind., March 10, 1891.
