One gift of fifty dollars is in itself a suggestion which if carried out, would greatly relieve the situation during this time of economic stress. The Texas Homoeopathic Society has sent us a gift of fifty dollars toward our cause, with the wish that it might be more, as they value The Recorder so highly. It occurs to us that if other state groups would follow the example of the Texas group, the situation would be relieved very promptly and they would insure the future of The Recorder, and they would bind their interest still more strongly to Hahnemannian homoeopathy, for we value most what we pay most for.

An interesting sidelight in these days of economic pressure is that many of our gifts are coming from points outside of the United States. Some of these gifts are small, and some are coming from far distant, isolated places where The Recorder has a peculiarly heightened value, in that it is the only link between homoeopathic pioneers and their homoeopathic background.

In spite of the fluctuating and unfavorable exchange rates, the foreign subscriptions continue to come in, and it is interesting to note that the percentage of new subscriptions is greater from outside the United States than from this country. Foreign, subscriptions have come in until of late quite as rapidly as the domestic subscriptions.

These things are evidence of the value in which The Recorder, as an exponent of homoeopathy, is held the world over.- H.A.R.
