To the Editor:  —Five years ago Mrs. T., lately removed to this locality, had a child four years old having a complete web or fleshy union of ring and middle fingers of one hand. A year and a-half later her neighbor bore a child having a corresponding union in two pairs of the fingers of each hand, and similar union of the smaller toes of both feet. Was it a simple coincidence, or did the mother or father impress the child thus?Charles City, Iowa, Dec. 13, 1888.
