Under the patronage of His Excellency Sir Laurence Guillemard, K.C.B., K.C.M.G., Governor and Commander in Chief of the Straits Settlements, and High Commissioner for Malaya, and the presidency of the Honorable Dr. A. L. Hoops, Principal Civil Medical Officer, Straits Settlements, the Fifth Congress of the Far Eastern Association of Tropical Medicine was held at Singapore, Straits Settlements during the week beginning September 3 last. An additional week was spent by many of the delegates in an interesting and profitable tour to points of interest in British Malaya as far north as Penang, including Kuala Lumpur, Port Swettenham and Ipoh.

Hospitality was provided on a most generous scale by the British hosts and hostesses, everything that could possibly have contributed to the comfort and enjoyment of the occasion by the attendants on the Congress apparently having been foreseen and provided. To this was added two weeks of uninterrupted fine weather at the pleasantest time of the year in British Malaya.
