The editor of the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, in the number for December 30, 1886, devotes six pages to an enumeration of the more important events of a medical character during the year, in which is included one rather facetious paragraph concerning the International Medical Congress to be held in 1887. With characteristic unfairness he says: " For this reason, as well as in accordance with the territorial policy of the management, the cities of the Atlantic coast will have but a small representation in the honors of the Congress." Had our learned confrère taken the trouble to examine the list of general and executive American officers of the Congress, including the Vice-Presidents, and also the Presidents of the Sections, he would have found them to number thirty-three, twenty-one of whom are residents of the Atlantic States, and seventeen of the twenty-one are residents of the five Atlantic cities.
