Aikin, Mich., March 14, 1903.
To the Editor:
—Baby S., a healthy seven-pound female baby, was born at full term on March 1, 1903. She has a prominent birthmark covering the left thumb and upper part of the arm, over the shoulder and slightly down the back. The mother had an accident three months before delivery. She was wearing an outing-flannel gown, the left sleeve of which was lighted from a match, and in a flash an area of the sleeve corresponding to the baby's birthmark was burned.
