New Orleans, La., March 23, 1901.

To the Editor:  —In reply to Surgeon-General Wyman's communication in The Journal of March 16 I will simply state that the fact that the representatives of the U. S. Marine-Hospital Service did not agree in the diagnosis of the representative of the Louisiana State Board of Health is no proof that Limon was not infected as early as July 17, 1900. The proof that the resident medical inspector of the Louisiana board was correct is that a few weeks later the natural evolution of the infection was so patent that it forced itself on the representatives of the service.
