To the Editor:
—I prefer that The Journal should stay where it is; for it is in the midst of a thriving, stirring medical people, and it is all the time growing fuller and richer in practical ideas. To be sure we have a great body of cold science in the East, but it needs to come to life and be clothed for practical work. Now the free, warm spirit of the great West is just the thing to move upon the medical bones of the East to cause them to stand up and give an efficiency to American practice that beats the world; for with our constitutional make-up, with proper training, and with the most wide-awake journals in our hand, we ought to be the ablest bedside practitioners beneath the sun, and if we are not we disgrace the Yankee name.65 Chandler st., Boston, Mass., Jan. 27,
