—In a current comment on this topic it was stated that the United States held first place among all nations for the greatest number of cases of smallpox. The figures quoted were taken from a bulletin issued by the American Association for Medical Progress. This association now calls attention to the fact that the number of cases for European Russia should have been the total for all Russia, and that the figure for India represented deaths and not cases. According to these corrections, the United States would have the second largest number and not the first.
