As will be seen from the advertisement, an examination for Honours in Psychological Medicine will take place in London next July. It was a fortunate circumstance that shortly after the establishment of the Pass Examination for the Certificate of Efficiency in Psychological Medicine, undertaken by our Association, a fund was placed at its disposal, through the generosity of Mrs. Holland, the sister of the late Mr. Gaskell, in whose memory she desired to hand over to the Association the sum of £1,000. When Mr. Wilkes, one of the executors of the former Commissioner of Lunacy, communicated to a member of the Council, Mrs. Holland's wish, it was at once felt that no better appropriation of the fund or one more in accordance with the wishes of Mr. Gaskell could be devised, than the encouragement of the practical knowledge of mental disorders on the part of medical men entering upon this special department. For this end it was made a primary condition of candidature that there should have been a residence for at least two years in an asylum for the insane in the character of a qualified medical officer. Another condition was that the candidate should have attained the age of twenty-three.
