We have much pleasure in submitting Professor Meyer's communication on rest and exercise in the treatment of nervous and mental diseases. That experienced observer and veteran teacher of the University of Göttingen has been an honorary member of the Medico-Psychological Association since 1867, when his name was proposed for election as the first to introduce non-restraint principles into German practice. During the thirty years which have since elapsed Professor Meyer has consistently adhered to the enlightened ideas which he then placed in the first rank of importance, and has enriched the science of medicine with many valuable works. We, therefore, honour him as a man well qualified to speak on this cardinal point. The debate so ably sustained at the last Annual Meeting by Drs. Clouston and Batty Tuke must deeply interest every physician charged with the treatment of the insane, as a practical question which has to be solved day by day in dealing with individual cases. Professor Meyer has taken up Dr. Clouston's concluding challenge, and has shown, as the result of ripe experience, that his theory and practice go hand in hand.
