PRESIDENT MCCLELLAND'S INTRODUCTORY ADDRESS was then delivered as follows :
Members of the American Institute: It becomes my duty, and pleasure as well, to first speak my thanks for the distinguished honor you have done me by electing me your president. That I appreciate this evidence of your regard, you must feel assured, and it shall be my earnest endeavor to serve you with fidelity.
The prime object of our gathering is to advance the cause of our science, and to further the interests of this great national body, and I beg that you will join with me in every effort to this end.
There will be differences of opinion as to how this shall best be done. Yet if we will agree to differ where we cannot adjust our differences, we will be able to transact our affairs agreeably and expeditiously. As you are aware the regular scientific work of the Institute will be transferred to the Congress this year, all bureaus holding over till next year, when the regular reports will be presented.
The short sessions of the Institute, which will be held daily, will be devoted to such current business as cannot well hold over. To this business let us address ourselves as expeditiously as possible, and I therefore declare the American Institute of Homeopathy convened for the transaction of such business as may properly come before it.
THE REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE WORLD's CONGRESS
OF HOMEOPATHIC PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS was offered by its Chairman, J. P. Dake, M.D., of Nashville, Tenn., and was accepted and referred to the Committee of Publication. The report simply stated that in the preparation of this programme and the work relating thereto, the committee appointed by the American Institute of Homeopathy had co-operated with the committee appointed by the World's Congress Auxiliary, and that said programme, therefore, represents the nature of the committee's labors. Following is the programme:
