Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 20, 1896.

To the Editor:  —Will you please inform me if our American diploma is accepted to practice medicine and surgery in any and all parts of Africa, and if not what procedure I will have to undergo to begin practice in that country. I was under the impression that anyone could practice in that country who was a regular graduate. Will you please be kind enough to give me the desired information I ask and oblige yours fraternally,W. C. Arons, M.D.211 Grand Ave.

Answer:  —Each country having provinces in Africa, has a different regulation. The independent states also have special regulations. A letter to the colonial governor in the case of the provinces would give you the desired information.
