This report consists mainly of papers by members of the hospital staff, usually reprinted from medical journals. An interesting feature described by W. P. Northrup is the openair roof-wards which have been established through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt. Experience has shown that for day and night continuous treatment the open roof-wards have done better service than balconies. The volume contains a number of valuable papers which reflect credit on both authors and the institution.
