TONER, of District of Columbia; Dr. J. MARION SIMs, of New York; Dr. HENRY I. BOWDITCH, of Massachusetts; and Dr. T. G. RICHARDSON, of Louisiana, presented themselves and were most cordially received.

Prayer was offered by Rev. W.F. MORGAN, D.D., of New York.

Dr. T. GAILLARD THOMAS, of New York, Chairman of the Committee of Arrangements, then welcomed the members of the Association to New York, as follows:


Fellows of the American Medical Association :

The pleasing duty has fallen to my lot of bidding you welcome to New York, and of offering you the hospitality of our homes. Sixteen years have passed since your Association last honored us with a visit. Let us pause for a moment, and consider what those years have borne upon their wings !

The struggle which at that time convulsed our land, has given way to peace; the terrible mental sufferings, which ever mark fratricidal quarrels, have quieted down into restored affection ; the devastating consequences of an exhausting titanic conflict have been replaced by prosperity; and unity, peace, and concord have made glad the blessed land which we proudly call our home! At the last meeting here, when all our horizon appeared so dark and foreboding, we welcomed you, Fellows of the Association, as our colleagues and our friends. Now that the happy issue has been reached—when the genial rays of the sun of national prosperity have made the whole landscape bright and effulgent—thrice warmly do we hail you as our brothers, inalienable, now and forever.

In this noble metropolis, whose doors are to-day thrown open to welcome you, you will see many wonderful changes, for sixteen years in the present day are equal to a cycle in the past. But in none of its advancing circles will you discover more evident signs of progress than in that department upon which your affections, your best wishes, and your highest ambitions are fixed.

As we whose homes are made amidst its busy walks show you, in the pleasant week which lies before us, its gorgeous edi. fices, its unsurpassed thoroughfares, and its magniticent works of art, we shall feel a sincere satisfaction in recognizing the fact that the pride excited by these falls into shadow and insignificance before that which is created by the demonstration to you that New York-the money-seeking, the utilitarian, and the superficial, as she is so often regarded -- has learned to honor science, to appreciate its results, and to reward its struggles. It shall be our pleasure to exhibit to you, not the palaces in which her bankers conduct the finances of the world, nor those in which her merchant princes carry on a traffic which knows no limits but those of the inhabited earth. It shall be to show you how these men house and clothe and care for the poor, the sick, and the needy; to lead you until a pleasant fatigue overtakes you

through miles of well-appointed hospital wards, whose hygienic appointments will put to the blush those of the stateliest palaces of European kings; to convince you, by incontestable evidence, how true, how loyal, and how sincere an appreciation of the science and art of medicine the representative city of America has acquired.

In the oldeu time men of wealth reared monuments to their memories by the erection of chapels and statues ; of fountains,
