To the Editor:
—In the all-too-generous appreciation of my work in the editorial in The Journal, April 9, it is intimated that my advice may have led to the creation of the Yellow-Fever Commission. As all that relates to the history and work of this commission is highly important, permit me to say that the credit for the creation of this commission belongs solely to General Sternberg, who had previously so completely exhausted the purely bacteriologic study of yellow fever that it was possible for the commission to follow the new direction which proved so fruitful in results.
