To the Editor:  —About the middle of August a man representing himself to be Dr. Ludwig Braun came to Galveston. He said that he had been demonstrator of pathology in McGill University, which Dr. Adami denies; that he was in the employ of the U. S. Navy, which Surgeon-General Stokes denies; and he was guilty of misrepresenting facts in a number of other instances. After mutilating a valuable book in our medical library, he disappeared, leaving some unpaid bills. If you think best this information might be published for the protection of others. He said he was on the way to Buenos Aires. He is a short, heavy-set, round-faced, smooth-shaven German who talks a great deal. If you should learn of his whereabouts we would be glad to know of it.

Comment.  —In 1910 a Dr. Ludwig Braun was tried and convicted of stealing microscopes and other instruments from physicians
