the Editor:  We notice in The Journal (Oct. 28, 1911, p. 1466), a statement that the Seventy-First Infantry, N. G. N. Y. is the first volunteer organization to submit to inoculation against typhoid fever. Also, in the issue of November 11, p. 1626, it is stated that the War Department has issued a circularsetting forth that the actual cash value of the antityphoid serum will be charged against the allotment of the state, for any serum furnished by the War Department.We desire' to state that the administration of antityphoid serum to the National Guard of Colorado antedates New York by nearly four months. Colorado did not wait for the War Department. to furnish the serum but bought it outright and administered it free of all charge to the members of its national guard.
