To the Editor:
—My attention has been directed to page 1124 of The Journal for Oct. 2, 1909, where my contribution to the Leprosy Conference is noted. I am represented as "greatly opposed to the use of nastin." The matter, I am aware, is not of much general interest, but at the same time I feel obliged to point out that these words misrepresent me altogether; all that I did was to report, with full clinical details, trial of nastin in four cases. The clinical details were very fully given and showed that no therapeutic effects, nor indeed effects of any kind, were produced; to such a statement I confined my remarks.
