The objects of our society are noi *

men. our worthy forefather*-through
y,\ whose toils, sacrifice*. and unselfish de;

under which we rejoice and

oar nation stands out as the beacon
light of the world. Not only do the
poor, the oppressed and the down-trodden,
turn to her benignant light for aid
< and comfort, but the Intelligent and
? thoughtful men of all nations, and the
p : wisest statesmen, who are seeking the
true solution of the modern problem
how best the happiness and prospert^
of the whole people may be conserved,
look to us for a practical exemplification
of the way.
I' The problems of our own social and
, political development demand as much
1 wisdom, patience, unselfishness and
true patriotism. In their proper solution,
as those of any era in our history. But
neither shall we fail, in our day. more
than did our fathers. If. like them, we
address ourselves to each question, as it
K arises, with fairness, with earnestness
i and with a sincere desire for the right.
We can have no better guide f6r the
; future than the example furnished by
the past. The readiness with which
preconceived theories about govern?
*n?f personal inter
nts were yielded to the general good of '
the nation as a whole, in the final for- <
xnation of our government, is the mont '
remarkable in the history of constltu- 1
tlonal governments, and furnishes a '
noble precedent for all succeeding gen
era dons. And in the farewell address <
of Washington, we have a mine of wis
doro for the guidance of our political ]
affairs, which stands to-day without u
rival?a monument of foresight, Judg- <
meat and sagacity unsurpassed.
While, then, we cherish the print i- '
pies of the Revolution, emulate tho 1
spirit which nerved the arm? of the 1
fathers to such mighty deeds, let us. '
also, with our patriotism, cherish a '
profound sense of duty, of subordina- i
tion to law, and of the maintenance of <
the common weal. Let us take a new 1

It shonld be a matter of pride on the
part of *&ch member of our society to
help extend its membership as widely
as possible throughout the state, whereever
an eligible pereon is \d be found. ]

The medical profession as a whole,
has been every ready to answer the call
of danger.

great national peril, or in the presence

and been "as the shadow of a great

Such, with few exceptions, were "The
Surgeons of the Revolutionary Army."
They were, as a role, country practlj
tloners. Beyond a few to be presently

"Indeed, the only work upon their milj

The following extract from a letter
from General Philip Schuyler, commtcdIng
the expedition for the invasion of
Canada, will give an idea of the difficulties
under which every brancb of the s*r?
-???? and #ha ?v?,iit!nrji under
which th? ^'irgcoos endeavored to per'
form their duty:
"TICONDEHOOA. August f. 1775.

whoever he may be, paying him for
the vrviee he may have performed."
The priratlona endured by the Revolutionary
surgeons were such as. while
common to all, mak?> us wimder at the
fortitude with which they were borne.
For example. Dr. Thatcher, in his "Military
Journal During the .American Revolutionary
War/' describes their sufferings
as follows:
"Our baggage is left In the rear for
want of horses to transport 1t. The mow

writes that he will sail from New York

made by our brethren across the waters
to rive Brother Jones a royal welcome
and ahow him every attention befitting
his high office. At a meeting of the
committee of management held February
9. It was resolved: "That Brother
Jones, the representative of America,
be entertained at the expense of the
order during the A. M. C., at Bolton,
and that further arrangements regarding
his visit be deferred to the next
board meeting." The English grand
secretary has given the following notice
to the order:
' It has been officially decided by the
American brethren of our order to send
Brother McHenry Jones, member of
that body, to visit this country and attend
the Bolton A. M. C. No doubt
Brother Jones will be pleased to pay a
visit to some of our districts during his
stay, and any lodge or district desirous
of inviting him will please communicate
the same to the grand secretary on or
