To the Editor:
—On behalf of Lexington Hospital and Dr. F. S. Kelly, we wish to announce that neither the hospital nor any member of the staff, nor any employee of the hospital, was in any way responsible, directly or indirectly, for the publication of recent articles announcing alleged "revolutionary medical discoveries" as to the effect of injections of mercuric salicylate in increasing the number of white blood corpuscles.We believe that the effect of such injections has been known to the medical profession for more than twenty years.Dr. F. S. Kelly, mentioned in the articles, is not the pathologist of Lexington Hospital; the latter was not connected in any way with the giving out of the articles for publication, nor was he directly or indirectly responsible for the views expressed in the articles.
