To the Editor:
—In The Journal, February 5, p. 424, Dr. Edward J. Stieglitz inquired whether the lowered blood pressure found by Cooper and myself in the tropics might not be due to the subjects examined having had a more than normal amount of rest. This factor could scarcely have accounted for the hypotension, as the officers examined led active lives, and, being only transients in the tropics, did not vary their mode of living from that followed in the temperate zone.
