Abstract

The completion of the sixtieth year of Queen Victoria's reign will doubtless be marked by the usual anniversary creation of peers, baronets, knights, etc. At present it seems probable that, as usual, the British medical profession will compete with fertilizer and sausage manufacturers for baronetcies and knighthood but will not dare to rival the lordly distillers and brewers in the race for peerages.
