Abstract

To the Editor:  —In Camagüey, the birthplace of Carlos Finlay, whose idea of the mosquito transmission of yellow fever has meant so much to the world, is not marked by any tablet. The hotel in which he was born has been torn down, but it stood on the Plaza Charles A. Dana. Would it not be a graceful thing for his American medical brethren to see that his birthplace bears a suitable tablet so that visitors would know where it is?
