In the general rejoicing of the American Medical Association on its fiftieth anniversary the Ophthalmic Section heartily joins, and all the more heartily because by reason of its own clean record, steady development and fair achievements, it has become a model Section of this notable gathering of American physicians and surgeons. To have been chosen to preside over its deliberations is a satisfaction for which I return my sincere thanks; to become the successor of the men who have labored so hard and so productively for the advancement of this Section and for the credit of ophthalmology is an honor I highly appreciate; to welcome you, my confrères, perhaps I may be permitted to say, my friends, on this occasion and on all other occasions when you shall gladden us with your presence, is a pleasure I greatly enjoy.
