To the Editor:
—In view of the fact that in numerous articles which have been recently published on the subject of iodin sterilization of the skin, mention is made of the paper of Grossich, published in the Zentralblatt für Chirurgie (October, 1908) [summarized in The Journal, Dec. 5, 1908, p. 2012], as being the first recorded use of iodin for that purpose, I wish to say that I used iodin for this purpose in 1905 and published a description of my method in The Journal, "Some of the Uses of Iodin in Surgical Practice," April 14, 1906, p. 1102. My method was described in a paper prepared for the February, 1906,ing of the Tri-STri-State Society of Virginia and the Carolinas, which was published in American Medicine, November, 1000.1906.d was again described in a paper prepared for the Hot Springs meeting of the Mississippi Valley Medical Association, Nov. 8, 1000,1906, published
