To the Editor:  —I am opposed to the proposition made to move the publication office and management of The Journal of the Association to Washington City. I vote Chicago to be continued as its permanent home because it is most central and has unexcelled mail facilities to all parts of the country, and because it is now and will continue to be nearer the centre of population, and destined to be the greatest medical centre of the United States.I would formulate a ballot and distribute to every member of the Association, requesting his vote on location, with signature and P. O. address, to be returned to the committee having the question of location in charge. This seems to be the legitimate way to satisfactorily settle the issue.3640 Cottage Grove Ave., Chicago, Jan. 16, 1891.
