To the Editor:  —In The Journal, July 2, a physician asks whether thallium acetate, 8 grains to the ounce of cold cream, would cause epilation locally or generally. I have tried thallium acetate by daily inunction for a period of two weeks in strengths up to 10 per cent on four individuals without observing any result whatever either at the time or later.
