To the Editor:
—In an article on the effects of methylene blue in carbon monoxide poisoning, Haggard and Greenberg (The Journal, June 24, p. 2001) made the following statement relative to my controls:
It is noteworthy that in these observations of Brooks the control rats were not injected even with saline solution.
Attention is called to the fact that these controls were made, as stated in the American Journal of Physiology (102:147 [Oct.] 1932) as follows: "Ringer-glucose injections alone had no effect on the time of recovery."
It might be explained that Ringer-glucose is a saline solution.
