To the Editor:—I observe in a recent number of The Journal a statement that a University under British tuition has been established at Pekin, China, with a medical department in working order.
The Pekin University has been organized in that city for a number of years, under the direction of the Rev. Dr, L. W. Pilcher. The medical department has been in active operation for several years and is doing excellent work. This institution, however, is under American control, and the majority of its faculty are Americans.
