Abstract

To the Editor:—  A pharmaceutical house has distributed to physicians a pamphlet printed by the Public Affairs Committee called "Epilepsy, the Ghost Is Out of the Closet." An accompanying letter from the company's president quotes a favorable comment about the pamphlet by The Journal and states that I assisted in the preparation of the pamphlet. This is true, but paragraphs dealing with heredity contain statements which I know are untrue and were printed in this red covered edition over my protest. A corrected blue covered edition has been printed for distribution by the American Epilepsy League, 50 State Street, Boston.
