To the Editor:  —In reading over your "Knocks and Boosts," I am rather surprised that the "knockers" criticize The Journal on the ground that it has too little of value to the general practitioner—that it does not help the country doctor. I have been a subscriber to The Journal ever since my senior year in medical school and have been what might be called a "country practitioner," but I never have received an issue of The Journal that has not contained something of interest or value to me. I look forward to the coming of The Journal in every Monday mail and am sure to miss it if it fails to appear. Even if I do not rend everything it contains, yet I scan it carefully from cover to cover to be sure that nothing escapes me, for often I have found some helpful suggestion in the most unexpected place.
