—An article on "Hay Fever," in The Journal of July 23, is likely to convey the false hope that the remedy therein given will prove efficacious. In the prize essay the author fails to mention that the ℞ morphine and atropia originated with Dr. Morehead, of England, who published it in the British Medical Journal, and which went the round of American journals. It is not my purpose to discuss the merits of the article, but as the title, "prize essay," may lead a number of your readers to try the remedy I, a sufferer from hay fever, have given it personally a most fair trial, and in my case, as well as those of several of my patients, it has proved the greatest disappointment.
