To the Editor:—
In the Jan. 4, 1958, issue of The Journal (page 78), is a foreign letter from the United Kingdom in which the unnamed correspondent holds forth on medical postage stamps, stating that, although Benjamin Franklin "is portrayed on a Russian stamp issued in 1956," "Pavlov has not been pictured on any Russian Stamp." That statement is incorrect: two stamps, showing Pavlov, were issued by Russia in 1949, the centenary of Pavlov's birth. They are in denominations of 40 kopecks and one ruble, and are duly listed in Scott's Standard Catalogue of Postage Stamps, as Russian stamps 1390 and 1391.
