INTRODUCTION.

The Papers included in this number of the Journal of Social Science are less than half of the Saratoga Papers of 1887. As some misapprehension may exist in regard to the publication of Papers by the Association, it may here be said that all Papers, engaged for the General Meeting of the American Social Science Association, are so engaged with the understanding that they may be printed in the Journal of Social Science, if the Council so decide; if, therefore, the writers choose to publish their Papers elsewhere (to which the Council offers no objection), it must be with the stipulation that these Papers may also be published in the Journal, at the option of the Council as to the time of publication.

A list of all the Addresses and Papers at the Meeting of 1887 was printed on pages v. and vi. of Journal No. XXIII. Those belonging to the Department of Education have been withheld by their authors, with the exception of Mr. Sanborn's Report and Mr. Gilman's Paper. The addresses of Colonel Higginson and Mr. Blaikie were not written out; the Paper of Mr. Mabie will appear in the Century Magazine; that of Prof. James is published by him in Philadelphia. The Papers of Miss Helena Magill and Miss Reed may be published hereafter.

The Papers of the Health Department are here printed in full ; indeed, that of Dr. Dana on “ Immigration and Nervous Disease," is somewhat extended beyond the pages read at Saratoga, as well as modified in its statistics and conclusions.

The two parts of the Saratoga Papers of 1887, will be sold together for $1.00 and the second part separately for 50 cents.
