Any paper on the “boarding-out system” in Scotland would be entirely incomplete without a reference to the recent death of its distinguished advocate and supporter, Dr. John Fraser. For seventeen years as a Deputy Commissioner Dr. Fraser visited patients throughout the length and breadth of Scotland, and his interest and enthusiasm in the method lasted to the end of a long life. His devotion to duty and the high standard he always set are fully appreciated by one who, as a Deputy Commissioner, is privileged to come after him, and finds a daily difficulty in adequately following in his footsteps. It is matter of real regret that he is not with us here to-day.
