La Junta, Colo., Aug. 22, 1906.
To the Editor:
—I have read with interest the reports made through The Journal on the use of pollantin in hay fever. My experience has been very limited; I have never used it until within the last two months. Four cases treated resulted as follows:1. A very aggravated case, in an aged person, who every year suffers intensely. The relief from the eye symptoms was immediate. For the nasal symptoms, which were but slightly relieved, a weak solution of adrenalin was ordered (this previously had given to this patient relief for a few moments only) to be followed by the pollantin. Relief was very marked and three weeks later patient reported herself as being more comfortable than she had ever dared hope to be.2. First attack, in a person who has resided here several years. Eye symptoms predominated. Relief was very rapid.
