Kinston, N. C., Aug. 24, 1904.
To the Editor:
—I noticed in The Journal, August 13, that you state in an editorial that Illinois had the first effective law regulating the practice of medicine. North Carolina really should have that distinction, her law having been passed in 1857. The remarkably high standing of her profession, which we believe to be higher than any other state, on an average, is due to her splendid medical laws, which have been "effective more than a quarter of a century."
