To the Editor:
—My attention has been called to the fact that a concern known as the "A. M. C." is advertising a number of preparations said to possess medicinal properties, one of which is called "Expectorant (Hare)"; another, "Tonic Comp. (Hare)." I am also told that traveling salesmen employed by this concern are representing that I am responsible for these formulas and that I have a financial interest in them. Please state for the benefit of your readers and for my protection that such a use of my name is without any justification whatever. I never heard of the "A. M. C.," whatever that may mean, before to-day, nor do I know what its compounds contain. It is hardly necessary for me to add that all statements made by any one to the effect that I have any interest in any pharmaceutical or chemical preparation are absolutely untrue.
