Boston, April 23, 1904.
To the Editor:
—I am sorry to see in The Journal of this date a "magazine written" article, mainly for the purpose of repeating the old falsity that W. T. G. Morton discovered and introduced ether anesthesia, when he himself at first acknowledged that Dr. C. T. Jackson gave him the prescription with directions, later given to Massachusetts General Hospital and by it given to the world.
