Excerpt from Transactions of the Annual Meeting of the American Laryngological Association: Held in the City of Washington, D. C. May 30 and 31, and June 1, 1889
The eleventh annual session of this organization is inaugurated, and I experience profound pleasure, as your president and as a citi zen of Washington, in bidding you cordial welcome to the national capital, to our hearts, and to our homes. Few among you can appro ciate my joy today at being spared to greet this association in my native city, and, more than all, to have the honor on this occasion of acting as your presiding officer.
You find our historic city decked in the robes of spring; on all sides the industry, learning, and generous wealth of a great nation are reﬂected. You are surrounded by the beauties of nature and art, and are in the home of the scientific libraries, laboratories, and ma scums, fostered and encouraged by a liberal Government. Every American and every physician should alike share in the desire for the substantial improvement and adornment of the Mecca of this great and populous country.
