To the Editor:  —The movement for the establishment of memorials to the late Lord Lister in Great Britain is moving on apace. The memorials consist of a statue in Glasgow and the preservation of the Lister ward in the old Royal Infirmary, which is being rebuilt; but the proposition is to retain Lister's ward in its original state and install there a museum which shall contain everything that can be gathered relating to the early work of Lord Lister. In London there will be a statue, a tablet in Westminster Abbey and also an international fund for the purpose of awarding premiums to specially eminent surgical work in any country in the world.I am glad to say that as a result of my letter in your issue of January 25, p. 308, I have already received nearly $700 in pledges and in cash. The cheeks have ranged from $5 to $100. When the matter is brought to the attention of the various national societies, I hope to see this sum largely increased. For the honor of the profession in this country and as an expression of appreciation of the wonderful work that Lister did for our profession and for humanity, it ought to be and I hope it will be multiplied several times over.
