Dr. John A. Wyeth, New York City, has sent us a letter which he has received from Prof. Miguel Bombarda, secretary-general of the International Congress of Medicine to be held at Lisbon in 1906. Dr. Wyeth expresses the hope that the unpleasant experiences of our delegates at Madrid will not deter us from taking an interest in the Lisbon congress. He suggests that it would be well for The Journal of the Association to inaugurate this movement by printing at this time this invitation.
