The abstract of the proceedings of the interesting annual meeting, which forms the subject matter of this volume, was duly published in the Journal, Oct. 5,1895. We have now only to add the notice of the appearance of this volume, and to congratulate the society and its veteran secretary, Dr. Wm. Warren Potter, on the appearance of this carefully edited and handsome volume of Transactions. The volume includes portraits and obituary sketches of Franklin Townsend Jr., of Albany, J. Edwin Michael of Baltimore, Thomas Keith of Edinburgh, and L. Ch. Boisliniere of St. Louis.
