[Note.—The following telegram was received in response to a request for information as to the present status of the work:]
To the Editor:
—We have repeatedly made the following statement: We do not claim to treat or cure cancer. We are carrying out an experimental effort to prove our contention that we have a potent extract from the cortex of the suprarenal. The incidents arising out of this experimental work even at this date do not justify any one to claim we are offering our extract as treatment or cure for cancer. We are placing all available specimens in the hands of the pathologist. We stand or fall on the decision of our recognized authorities. We likewise have stated on the report of your quoted remarks that we approve of your discussion of this important subject.
