The characteristic feature of this year's annual meeting was the large amount of business arising out of the reports of Committees appointed the year before. The most important of these had reference to the proposed new rules of the Association. Much labour and time had been expended upon their revision, and it was hoped by many that they would be adopted. As, however, some members had not received their proofs of the rules till within a short period of the meeting, it was decided to postpone the consideration of their adoption until the date of the quarterly meeting in November. A resolution was passed on an important subject —the extension of the sittings of the annual meetings from one to two or three days. We are glad to be able to record this, for although the meeting was not prepared to make this course compulsory, but permissive, there can be no doubt that this permission will be acted upon, and that when once the proposed plan is adopted it will become a permanent institution. Papers on medical psychology will be read and discussed, and we may hope that the result will be the advancement of knowledge in our special department. It is very doubtful that the Journal will be able to find room for the articles, in addition to those which are prepared or are read at the quarterly meetings of the Association in Great Britain and Ireland. It may be that a separate volume of annual transactions may be rendered necessary. Among other subjects discussed, the question of the admission of lady doctors as members led to an animated debate, and although the general wish was in favour of this innovation, it was found that the existing rules did not permit it. The decision had, therefore, to be postponed until the existing rule is modified.
