THE Committee of Publication feel that it is due to the Members of the American Medical Association, as well as to themselves, to state that the delay in the appearance of the present volume was unavoidable.

It is sincerely hoped that this exmlanation will exonerate the Committee from any censure that might otherwise be cast upon them.
