—In your issue of the 15th inst., page 683, the reporter in the discussion about jequirity in the Chicago Medical Society, has so seriously misquoted me that I must in justice to myself ask of you to correct it. I am represented as saying that " a small quantity of hyd. chl. cor. would increase the efficiency of the remedy." I stated that the inflammation and consequent advantage was unquestionably due to the presence of bacteria, and that an interesting observation would be to know whether the infusion made with a weak solution of bichloride of mercury would destroy its action.Yours truly,
