To the Editor:  —The enclosed translation of an editorial in the Monastir Daily Press of July 6, 1915, may be of interest to your readers. The article is of value in the fact that it shows the appreciation of the Serbians of American assistance. It is of little value for the estimate it has placed on the work of myself and colleagues. It does us far too much credit. The warm weather has done much more toward eradicating typhus than our own efforts. Incidentally, typhus is well under control and does not exist in more than half a dozen places in Serbia, and in these places not to an alarming extent.Enclosed also are memoranda of a report of conditions among the inhabitants of Southwest Macedonia.B. W. Caldwell, M.D., Bitolji (Monastir), Serbia.

[Comment.  —Dr. B. W. Caldwell is the hospital administrator connected with the American Red Cross Sanitary Commission
