WE are glad to see that steps were taken, at the December meeting of the Phila. County Medical Society, looking to another and larger memorial meeting in honor of the father of American Homoeopathy. The meeting held in October last, although due notices were published, was but slimly attended by the physicians of the city and vicinity. Outsiders seemed more anxious to honor the dead hero—the great exponent of true homoeopathy— than were his immediate neighbors. This should not be.
We hope the physicians of our city—yea, even those from afar—will inaugurate a fresh memorial offering to the honored dead, and that steps will there be taken not only for a suitable monument for his grave, but also for the publishing of the memorial volume, and for the correct completion of his unfinished labors.
All honor is due to Constantine Hering, the noble man, the consistent physician. And let all his brethren show their admiration for their late friend and teacher by heeding his last admonition not to desert ‘‘the strict inductive method of Hahnemann.”
