To the Editor:
—You may be interested to hear that "Mrs. Potter's Pure Walnut-Juice Hair-Dye" is as effective in Boston as in Omaha. About two weeks ago, by courtesy of Dr. J. T. Sherman, of Dorchester, I saw an elderly woman who presented exactly the same picture as Dr. Schalek's patient, described in The Journal, Feb. 13, 1909, page 557. She stated that this was her second attack, she having been cured of the first about four weeks before at a hospital in the neighborhood of Boston. Her hair had obviously been dyed, and, when questioned, she produced the original bottle, saying that it was to her a new preparation and had been highly recommended. Each of her attacks followed the application of the dye and each responded promptly to treatment.
