ABSTRACT

Marienville, Pa., July 29, 1895.

To the Editor:  —The more one sees of The Journal (big capitals in The, please,) the more satisfaction there is in seeing it all, from title page to finis, of the highest order.

In a conversation with Trustee Dr. E. E. Montgomery, at the Philadelphia meeting, I said the only criticism I heard now about the Journal was that "it was too good." There is more than "something" in that. The Journal wants a big circulation.
