Wheelersburg, Ohio, May 19, 1896.

To the Editor:  —Referring to Eulenberg's contention, as reported in the last number of the Journal, that the sudden death of a healthy child at Hoechst-on-Main after an injection of antitoxin, could not have been due to the virulence of the serum, but was perhaps the result of embolism, the puncture of a vein, or the introduction of air, may it not be pertinent to inquire whether ordinary hypodermic medication as heretofore practiced by all classes of physicians, has been followed by sudden deaths similar to those reported after the use of antitoxin?
