If, in this the ninth annual letter of your correspondent to the Journal, he should leave out the usual introductory plaint as to the impossibility of crowding the important psychiatric news of the year, even in shortest form, into the allotted space, the patient reader—if there be such—might welcome the change of style. Some vindication, however, is due the writer if he seems to supply a parcel of fragments rather than a true epitome.
