Copenhagen, Denmark, August 18, 1884.
—The eighth session of the International Medical Congress has held its meeting in Copenhagen, and the Congress has adjourned to meet again in Washington in 1887, the invitation of the American Association, tendered by Dr. John S. Billings, having been accepted. This meeting has been very successful in every way, being largely attended, especially by men from the Continent and the British Isles, together with a considerable delegation from America. Although no full directory has yet been published, it is probable that there are about 1,500 members present, and the city is crowded with them.The exercises commenced Sunday, August 10, with an address by President Panum, in the presence of His Majesty, the King of Denmark, and in the evening with a dinner given by the President and the Executive Committee. They have continued through the week, closing Saturday, August 16. Each
