To the Editor:—
In perusing The Journal of May 24, page 2393, I saw the report of Dr. John Greenwood and Dr. Edmond R. Hess of rat bite fever in an infant aged 11 days. I was once awakened from my sleep within three hours after an infant was born by its crying; I saw a rat biting the child's toe. Following this rat bite the child had rat bite fever.
