To the Editor:
—I note in The Journal, Dec. 22, 1923, page 2073, in Dr. Hayne's article, the statement that "South Carolina in 1910 was the first state to furnish diphtheria antitoxin free to its citizens, black and white." Massachusetts began the manufacture and distribution of diphtheria antitoxin in 1895, supplying 30,000 c.c. in the year ending March 31, 1896.
