To the Editor:—
Even at this late date, for the sake of historical accuracy, I call attention to an error on page 1264 of The Journal for Oct. 12, 1940: Dr. Beck states that "John Monro of Boston" in 1907 suggested operation to tie off a patent ductus arteriosus. The surgeon referred to was John C. Munro, surgeon in chief at the Carney Hospital, Boston, not "John Monro."
