Dear Sir:—I notice in some of the journals giving a report of the proceedings of the Surgical Section of the recent meeting in New Orleans, that I am reported as having stated in a case of ovarian cyst that during coitus the cyst was ruptured, thus causing the tumor to disappear, arid with it the death of the patient. The reporter's statements are correct with a single exception: the woman survived and is now well. Yours truly,
