Seattle, Wash., July 18, 1905.

To the Editor:  —It is not generally known that the degree of LL.D. had been awarded to Dr. J. Collins Warren of Boston, orator on surgery at the session in Portland, by the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Had he accepted the degree, his presence would have been required in Edinburg, and in consequence he could not have fulfilled his Portland engagement. This smacks of the fine spirit of 1776. It is just to Dr. Warren that the profession should know this self-denial of our colleague in putting aside the great honor.
