CHICAGO, March 30, 1903.

To the Editor:—I wish to protest as vigorously and publicly as may be against the sentiment, the lack of good taste, the apparent deplorable motive, and the contents of the editorial with the Latinized caption, on page 855 of the last issue of THE JOURNAL. This poorly conceived, libelous and anonymous assault on the scientific labors of Dr. Jacques Loeb, and on his personal character, does not add dignity to THE JOURNAL, nor is it calculated to cultivate respect for the Association among the many students of this pioneer in physiology. I have read it with shame and disgust, and I call for a public apology from the censorial editor of this flagrant neglect of duty.—BAYARD HOLMES, M.D.
