To the Editor:
—Had I a dozen votes on the location of The Journal not one of them would be cast for Washington; it should, in my opinion, be published at some central point: Chicago, Cincinnati, or St. Louis; but if it is to go East, let it be to Philadelphia, New York, or Boston.Washington is the place for many things of National importance;—a quiet place for legislators to meet—it is a National burying ground full of monuments; there can be found the remains of many men, things, and enterprises; in fact hundreds of clever, live men are buried there in the various departments yearly, but Washington is not the place for the headquarters of the American Medical Association or its organ. Keep the one on wheels, the other in Chicago.Burlington, Ia., March 28, 1891.
