To the Editor:
—Tularemia in Sweden is the subject of an editorial comment in The Journal, August 13, page 567, the last sentence of which I would like to question; i. e., "He states that many cases which had been diagnosed Parinaud's disease were later proved to be cases of 'conjunctivitis tularensis.' "My objection relates to the use of the word "proved," which should have been "assumed," especially since Granström does not go so far as to say that it is proved.I have given considerable attention to testing the serums of cases of Parinaud's disease, especially from the New York clinics, and I have never found one that agglutinated Bacterium tularense.
