Abstract

The Moravians of England have shown a marked interest in the medical work of their brethren who have exiled themselves to Thibet, and other remote outposts, for the benefit of the heathen. The loss of Dr. Marx by epidemic influenza at Leh, in Ladek, has intensified this interest, and a kind of memorial medical scholarship has been begun in London. The March number of the journal Periodical Accounts, contains the following statement: " As it costs each medical practitioner at least £300 to qualify (in London or England), it is thought well to aim at a medical missionary training fund to provide for the full course of at least one candidate, preferably from the British Province. We would gladly provide, by a medical scholarship, for the training of a series of candidates for this branch of the service, but that would require a capital of from £6,000 to £8,000."
