To the Editor:—
I was interested in your recent editorial concerning the importance of spirochetal jaundice in the United States (The Journal, October 2, p. 1128). Since no mention was made of this disease in Hawaii, I am submitting to you one of my recent reports on this subject. You may be interested to know that since our first finding of this disease in the territory in October 1936 there have been reported by physicians a few cases of Weil's disease from the various islands including Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.
