Fredonia, N. Y., Aug. 10, 1908.

To the Editor:  —Allow me to state that at the annual meeting of the Chautauqua County (N. Y.) Medical Society, held July 14, 1896, I reported that: "Quinin is a safe and efficient anesthetic when used hypodermatically and much safer than cocain."A report of the proceedings of that meeting in the Buffalo Medical Journal of August, 1896, page 32, contains a reference to my report. My attention was called to the matter by an article in The Journal, August 8, by Dr. E. J. Brown on "Quinin Anesthesia."
