To the Editor:
—Dr. A. P. Goff, chief, San Lazaro Hospitals Division, of the Bureau of Health for the Philippine Islands, calls attention to the health report in The Journal, Jan. 8, 1910, page 148. He says:"In this report Manila is credited with 11 cases of yellow fever from Oct. 30 to Nov. 6, 1909, and the provinces with 160 cases of the same disease. This is, of course, simply a mistake in printing [caused by a line of type being transposed.— Ed.]—the cases mentioned being cholera cases that occurred during period mentioned, but the islands have enough to contend against without any one getting it into his head that we have yellow fever here also."I respectfully ask that the necessary corrections be made.
