To the Editor:
—From reading the address of the Chairman of the Section on Surgery at the late meeting of the Association, one is at a loss to know whether Dr. Logan was not aware of what had been written on the " Dry Method of Treatment of Wounds," previous to the address of Dr. Landerer, before the German Congress of Surgeons; or whether the matter was presented by him, in a clearer and more convincing light, in view of the growing general distrust of Listerism, in all its details, by the profession arriving at the conclusion that the benefits are summed up in cleanliness, and the practically dry and infrequent dressing of wounds. But, be it as it may, no credit is given the advocates of dry treatment, in this country or in England, although cases reported might have been as convincing as any contained in Dr. Landerer's address.On
