Hammond as their representative in the defense which he puts forward in the columns of the New York Medical Journal, Sept. 16, of the practices of publicity hunting, by newspaper interviews, newspaper portraits and of the use of and traffic in secret preparations, etc. I have in the course of recent travel received personally from many hundreds of prominent and representative physicians in Milwaukee, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, and from all parts of the United States, their cordial congratulations on the tone and substance of the addresses which I had the honor to deliver at Milwaukee and Washington. I have been assured on all hands of the entire sympathy of the great body of the profession in the views therein
