To the Editor:  —I believe Dr. J. Clarence Webster and Dr. J. M. Baldy (see The Journal, April 29, 1911, p. 1280) are both behind the times in respect to priority of the operation above named. I saw Dr. Frank Andrews do this operation at Mercy Hospital in 1898 many times, drawing the round ligaments through the broad ligaments and uniting them back of the fundus. Dr. Andrews said that occasionally it might be advantageous to put a small suture from ligaments to fundus when the round ligaments were greatly relaxed.
