Boston, Dec. 20, 1904.

To the Editor:  —In reply to the enclosed* letter: In my paper I have stated what are now generally considered to be the indications for the termination of pregnancy in properly selected cases, so that it is unnecessary for me to review the subject again here. As I have nothing to conceal in this matter, however, and as every operation that I have performed has been done after mature deliberation and consultation with reputable men, I have made a brief report of each case for publication.1. Mrs. E. F. B., Oct. 15, 1900; seen in consultation with Dr. A. A. Cliff; patient had also been seen by Dr. L. A. Cliff; young married woman with extreme exhaustion from constant vomiting; she and husband both desirous of children and to have pregnancy continued if possible. Condition extreme and recovery considered doubtful even with operation. Adherent retroversion.
