To the Editor:
—In your issue of October 25, you publish a letter from Prof. Donald McLean, of Detroit. In this he corrects his statement of statistics, made in Washington last May. At that meeting he said that from Oct. 1, 1883, to May, 1884, he had done five ovariotomies, and that all the cases had recovered. He now says that one of these cases died. That leaves him then with five ovariotomies from Oct. 1, 1883, to May, 1884, with one death and four recoveries. Now, I have in my possession a copy of the death certificate of another. She died on the 30th day of January, 1884, at Lansing, Mich. Will Prof. McLean recall this case also?Very respectfully yours,419 Pennsylvania Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa.
