—It was announced several weeks since that Dr. Leopold Servais, of Antwerp, had been appointed by the Belgian Government as representative to the Congress in Washington. More recently we learn that Deputy Surgeon-General Jeffrey A. Marsten, M.D., of the British Army, has been designated a representative by his Government; and the Government of France, through the Academy of Medicine, has designated as representarives Drs. Charpentier, Dujardin Beaumetz, Léon Le Fort, Trélat and Vallin. From all directions, at home and abroad, the indications of a very large and interesting Congress are of the most gratifying character.
