To the Editor:  —In the summary of my article on"Anaphylaxis to Salvarsan," in The Journal, Oct. 5, 1912, p. 1240, some lines have been misplaced. They should read:"This Phenomenon seems to depend on an alteration of the native serum by salvarsan so that the homologous serum acts like a foreign proteid. In patients who show anaphylactic symptoms on repeated injections of salvarsan, a similar reaction probably takes place between the patient's own serum and Salvarsan."
