To the Editor.—May I express my thanks to Dr. Linn Emerson (Arch. Ophth.7:954 [June] 1932) for calling my attention to his article in the Medical Digest of October, 1904, and for the copy of the tabulated results? I am indeed sorry that I did not find any reference to it, though I went back as far as 1880 in my search through the literature.
