"My Dear Doctor: - We write yon concerning the homeopathio college at Anu Arbor. Whatever may be our individual views of the question, we oonsider it nnwise to fnrther publicly agítate the removal. "The regenta are demonstratiDg tbeir intention to treat the homeopathio department fairly, and the new faculty members are administeriug its affairs in a way to command universal respect. So long as this happy combination continues, it seems clear to ns that the prufession should give unqualified support to the existiug order of tbings. "When there is greater cause and more urgent demand, tbere is yet time and opportunity to seek legislativo aetion. That the united profession gains its wish is well said, bat let us not hazard our future piospeots by too frequent demands upon our friends. For the time let ns defer action and give, if not support, at least opportunity for favorable developments at the University. "For onrselves we believe it our duty to most cordially and eothnsiastically support the homeopathie college as at present administered. "Yours fraternally and for homeopathy, "O. R. Long, M. D., Ionia. "J. C. Nottingham, JA. D., Bay City, "R. (J. Olin, M. D., Detroit, "J. N. Reynolds, M. D., Grand Haven, "S, G. Milner, M. D., Grand Rapids, "Lancelot Younghusband, M.
