To the Editor:  —My attention has been called to the fact that in my article on this subject (The Journal, Oct. 13, 1917, p. 1223), I overlooked important experimental work which was done by Prof. Oskar Klotz of Pittsburgh and published in the Transactions of the Association of American Physicians in 1914.I regret this oversight because Professor Klotz' experiments were conducted in much the same way as our own, and because in some respects he seems to have had even more conclusive results than we obtained. Professor Klotz at that time (1914) already noticed the characteristic lesions in the glomeruli produced by intravenous injections of streptococci, and he seems to have been more successful than we in obtaining, in addition, characteristic lesions in the interstitial tissue.I hope that you will publish this letter so as to give proper credit to Professor Klotz' work in this connection.
