May I first say what great personal pleasure it gives me that our two Societies should join in this meeting. When during my Presidency we received your kind invitation I was delegated to accept and am even more delighted at the response. Our two Societies have a great amount to contribute to medicine and hygiene in the tropics and collaboration will lead to more than the sum total of the efforts made by each Society individually. I hope this meeting will be the first of a series.

It is very good that we should look at problems together for all our interests medical and cultural are so interwoven. When I was a boy, Philadelphia to me was a small industrial township in County Durham and Washington was Washington Co. Durham 5 miles distant from my home. Only later was I conscious of Philadelphia, Pa. and Washington D.C., and of the way in which their origins are intertwined.
