To the Editor: You asked me to record my impressions of American dermatology and like a "mad Englishman" I will "rush in where angels fear to tread."
I must remind you that it was my first visit and that it lasted barely seven weeks, that I saw nothing of New England or the West Coast and little of the Middle West.
On the other hand, the generosity of your Academy smoothed my path by including my wife and daughter in your invitation and by removing the stress of the meager British dollar allowance. Furthermore the exceeding great kindness of my colleagues and friends in America made it possible for me to appreciate quickly and with ease both the dermatological treasures which you have to offer in all your centers and the delights of your country and your peoples.
I must confess that I had not expected to enjoy America, interested
