Dear Sir:—In your issue of June 13, 1885, page 668, is an item that needs correction. The paragraph alluded to should read as follows: Dr. X. C. Scott moved the appropriation of $500, or so much as should be necessary to pay the necessary personal expenses of the committee appointed to advocate before the legislature of Ohio the necessity of " Medical Examiners" for this State; also, a "State Board of Health." Dr. Franklin supported the motion, saying that the Society could not expect their committee to pay their own traveling expenses, their hotel bills, for printing circulars, and paying postage, etc., out of their own pockets.
Dr. Franklin has never been a member of the legislature, and did not make the remark attributed to him by your reporter. Respectfully,
Member Ohio State Medical Society. Chillicothe, Ohio, June 28th, 1885.
