Last week we devoted considerable space to our esteemed contemporary, the New York Medical Record, and its attacks on the American Medical Association. Underlying the series of Record editorials was the insinuation that the American Medical Association, through its Journal, was accumulating money, and, further, that this money was being squandered or misappropriated, or something of the kind, by the trustees or by the officers of the Association, because—in the Record's opinion—a sufficiently detailed report of the affairs of the Association was not published to the world. This impression was conveyed in spite of the fact that every detail has been and is available at any time to those who are entitled to it. The Record's position as a critic in this matter will be appreciated when it is known that it does not publish and will not make known to any one even so much of its own affairs
