The invitation was responded to by a considerable number of the leading Homeopathic practitioners of the country, who, according to previous arrangement, convened in the Lyceum of Natural History in New York City, on the 10th day of April, 1844, the eighty-ninth anniversary of the birth of the illustrious Hahnemann.
