To the Editor:
—Why should we move The Journal to Washington? It is a great political centre and nothing more. We do not want The Journal entangled in the wire-pulling of medical politicians. The Journal is the expression of the American Medical Association, and not of self seekers in politics. Certainly the " original work" could not be improved by locating it at Washington. I do not know of much lasting original research coming from a political centre. The men in such places are usually too busy in self seeking to work very hard. By all means keep The Journal in Chicago.Hot Springs, Ark., March 13, 1891.
