To the Editor:
—I wish to point out a mistake made both by Charcot and your contributor Stewart R. Roberts in the issue of The Journal which has just come to hand (Dec. 29, 1917, p. 2204). In a letter from Stewart R. Roberts he quotes Charcot, and the mistake occurs in the last few lines of a quotation from the letters of the latter. It is his reference to the nativity of the distinguished physician, Graves. Graves, as every student of medicine should know, was born in Ireland and practiced medicine all his life in Dublin, which is the capital of Ireland.
—Following is a brief biography of Graves from Garrison's "History of Medicine":Robert James Graves (1796-1853), the son of a Dublin clergyman, took his medical degree in 1818, and, while making the usual continental tour, had such adventurous experiences as being arrested as a German spy
