To the Editor:
—The article in The Journal, Dec. 28, 1918, p. 2127, on "The Effect of 'Ground Glass' on the Gastro-Intestinal Tract of Dogs," reminds me of a peculiar case in my practice: About thirty-five years ago a minister brought to me a diaper recently removed from an infant about 30-months old. A small quantity of fecal matter on the cloth showed a number of small pieces of broken glass mixed with it. The child had found the glass on the floor and, as usual, put it into its mouth, and finally swallowed it. There was no blood on the diaper, and, as far as could be determined, no untoward effects resulted.
