To the Editor:
—In The Journal, May 28, containing the report on Chinosol by the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry, the table of contents (second cover page) is so worded as to have caused an entirely incorrect interpretation. The report of the Council states that Chinosol is non-poisonous and that it is an intensely powerful antiseptic, much stronger than phenol (carbolic acid) and even stronger than bichlorid. It is as an antiseptic that we are introducing Chinosol; thus as a matter of justice to Chinosol and to us, we ask that you publish this letter.
