Burlington, Iowa, July 23, 1883.

Dear Doctor.  —I have received your first number, and am delighted with it as a journal; but I am not so pleased with your advertisements. Parke, Davis & Co. have bored the physicians of the Northwest sufficiently with their ready-made prescriptions.

Soon I presume you will advertise Warner's safe cure for kidney trouble. Now, I protest right here against the organ of the American Medical Association being the means of disseminating any such advertisements. I ask a place for this in your correspondent's column, and see if I am not indorsed by nine-tenths of the physicians in the land.Yours truly,
