To the Editor:—  My attention has just been called to an article entitled "Practical Consideration of Snake Poisoning," by Benjamin H. Orndorff, B.A., M.D.," Instructor in Pathology, Chicago College of Medicine and Surgery, Pathologist to Frances Willard Hospital, Chicago." This article was published in the Medical Standard, Chicago, September and December, 1909, pages 476 to 481 and 637 to 640. There was published by me in the Archives of Internal Medicine, Chicago, volume 1, June, 1908, pages 516 to 570, a paper entitled "Snake Poisoning in the United States; a Study Based on an Analysis of 740 Cases." This paper was the result of a large amount of work, which involved not only an examination of the literature but a collection, by correspondence with physicians practicing in the South, of a considerable number of unpublished cases. This article was commented on editorially by The Journal, July 11, 1908, page 132
