ADDRESS OF WELCOME AND REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF ARRANGEMENTS.

By J. W. S. GOULEY, M. D., of New York County,
Chairman of the Committee.

November 18, 1884.

GENTLEMEN: In the name of the Fellows of New York County, I have the pleasure of tendering you a most cordial welcome to our city and to the first annual meeting of the New York State Medical Association, which, God grant, will year after year become more and more useful to the profession and beneficent to the public.

The scheme of our proceedings has already been laid before you; each Fellow having received a copy of the programme. It is now necessary only that you should be reminded of the invitation of the Fellows of New York County to an evening entertainment for next Thursday, and of the proceedings of the morning of the fourth day, which are to be in the amphitheatre of Bellevue Hospital. In the afternoon of the fourth day, there will be an excursion to the islands in the East River, and to the different hospitals and asylums under the charge of the Commissioners of Charities and Correction, who heartily invite you all to inspect these institutions.

A brief analysis of our programme may now be of interest: Four addresses and forty-six essays are offered you. These fifty scientific contributions come from the five geographical districts, in the following proportions:

It is to be hoped that, at future meetings of this Association, every county in the State will be represented by one or more essayists, and that the increase in the number will lead to the permanent establishment of sections in the Association, to be devoted solely to the reading of papers and their discussion.

The fifty scientific contributions, including the four addresses, to be presented this year, may be classified, as regards their subject-matter, as follows:

The titles of a number of papers have been received since the publication of the programme; and it is likely that others will be offered before the close of the meeting.

The question will doubtless arise in the minds of many, Can this unusually large number of papers be disposed of in the few sessions to be held this week? The answer is conditionally affirmative. Every paper can be read either fully, by abstract, or by title, and most of them can be freely discussed, provided that a limit be placed to the length of time for reading and discussion, and that the strictest economy of time be observed. There are at most twenty hours to be devoted to the reading and discussion of these papers during the three afternoon and the two night sessions.

If each Fellow reading a paper will, at its conclusion, briefly indicate the points he particularly wishes to be considered, it will not only render the discussion more interesting than otherwise, and more to the point, but will save valuable time.

There is always great loss of time in irrelevant remarks. To avoid this, the Association should refuse to tolerate any discussion which does not bear directly upon the subjects treated of in each essay. Time is also lost by unnecessary delay between the conclusion of the discussion on one paper and the introduction of the next. The Committee on Scientific Contributions will surely take measures to avoid such delays.

The primary aims of this Association, as you know, are the cultivation and advancement of the science of medicine and the promotion of public health. Let us all strive incessantly to further these aims; let each individual Fellow labor as arduously
