Prof. W. W. Keen: 

Dear Sir:  —I notice from certain papers sent me from America that the antivivisection party are as active in your country as in mine.I notice also that the methods which have covered the antivivisection party with contempt and ridicule in this country are being reproduced in America.In England the improper use of my name has very nearly ceased owing to the persistent circulation of the enclosed letter [the one in the Times above referred to.—Ed.] and the repeated publication of the fact that I am—as every sane medical man must be—an ardent supporter of vivisection.The fact that your name has been brought into the matter has led me to trouble you with this letter in the hope that you may be able to make use of it should you consider the matter worthy of notice.
