To the Editor:
—I would like to point out some serious errors made in the review of my book "Physicians' and Nurses' Concise Medical Encyclopedia" in The Journal of Nov. 4, 1950. 1. Your reviewer condemned the book because he found a misspelling of "Gaffky" (a typographical error) and assumed that my spelling was poor. However, on page 98, under a leading article, "Gaffky" is spelled correctly. 2. Your reviewer quoted the first sentence of my article on "pulmonary embolism" as evidence that I did not know the etiology of the disease. The etiology, however, is given in the second sentence of the article.
