Dr. Abram Jacobi of New York City, has information from the Secretary of the Eleventh Congress that no postponement has been ordered. He has a letter as late as May 15, saying that the rumors, published from cablegrams purporting to come from Rome, are without foundation.
The Sanitary Section of the Congress will be chiefly if not exclusively devoted to the discussion of cholera and quarantine. Drs. Koch and Cunningham of India are expected to take part in the work of that Section.
Those Americans who have been preparing to attend the Rome Congress need not cease those preparations until they hear of some official declaration to the effect that the meeting is off the card.
Dr. Jacobi's statement may be seen in the New York Medical Journal for June 3, 1893.
