It is the habit of some to talk of this annual notice of the reports as a review. It in no way deserves such a title, for it is simply a notice, and is intended to rescue from oblivion any fact or statement which may interest or instruct the readers of the Journal. For obvious reasons it is not desirable that any very severe literary or other test be applied to these publications. Most of the writers are members of this society, and would not like, supposing they are but ordinary mortals, that their annual effort in composition should be roughly handled in a journal which they help to maintain. Besides, most superintendents are compelled to write a report, whether they feel able for it or not, and their consent is not asked for its publication; they therefore appear year by year as authors against their will. They are consequently entitled to every consideration, and their position is quite different from that of the man who writes a book or even ventures on recording a case.
