—At the last annual meeting of the Pennsylvania State Medical Society, a committee was appointed on this subject, consisting of Drs. James Tyson, Charles R. Mills, and Robert N. Chase. A letter from the chairman of the committee, Dr. James Tyson, states that they have prepared a circular and cards on which to record observations for acute pneumonia, chorea, and acute rheumatism, and endeavored to place them in the hands of every member of that Society. If any member has been accidentally omitted, he can obtain copies by applying to the chairman of the committee, 1506 Spruce street, Philadelphia, Pa.
The cards and questions and diseases are the same as used by the committee of the British Medical Association, for the purpose of making the returns capable of comparison in both countries. The parties receiving these cards are requested to fill and return them to the Chairman of the Committee
