To the Editor:  —As many of the letters in The Journal opposed to its removal to Washington are from the West, I write, as originally from New England and living East, to express my opinion and firm belief that the best interests of The Journal will be served by keeping it in Chicago.The fact that full delegations of the profession in and near Washington will be at the meeting to vote for removal should induce delegates of the North, South and West to attend the meeting and vote against removal, so that the small percentage of membership favoring removal may not out-vote the vast majority opposed to removal from the remoteness of one party and nearness of the other party to the place of meeting.Fleetville, Lackawanna Co., Pa.
