To the Editor:
—May we call your attention to what is doubtless an unintentional injustice done our product, Lactobacilline Liquide, in the Queries and Minor Notes Department of The Journal, Aug. 23, 1913, p. 618? In your note you refer to an article by Professor Heinemann, dated Jan. 30, 1909, stating that yeasts were found in the product of the Franco-American Ferment Company as sold in the form of powder and tablets and that "Sewerin also failed to find B. bulgaricus in Lactobacilline."The Lactobacilline preparations examined by Professor Heinemann were imported and were foreign products obtained previous to the time when the Ferment Company of New York manufactured Lactobacilline. The Lactobacilline referred to by Sewerin was examined by him in Russia and was not manufactured in America. His report was published in the Centralblatt für Bakteriologie, November, 1908, and was merely referred to in The Journal, Jan. 27, 1912.
