—The following is a statement by Drs. William H Van Doren and Paul B. Magnuson relative to the case of a girl operated on presumably for the correction of bow-legs by Dr. Schireson, concerning whose record an editorial appears in The Journal, February 4, page 387. The report was prepared at the request of The Journal.—Ed.]Miss S. H. stated that she consulted Dr. Schireson regarding a scar on her left arm which was the result of a burn in childhood, and talked to him at the same time about some bowing that she thought she had in her legs. He advised her to have them both taken care of, and to that end sent her to the Osteopathic Hospital, where he operated on her, January 17. She understood that he was to do the operation, no other doctor being mentioned, and paid him $800 in advance
