Amsterdam, N. Y., Sept. 20, 1897.

To the Editor:  —The remarks of Dr. E. P. Stimson in the last number of the Journal upon some statements of mine at the Niagara Falls meeting of the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, when the subject of eclampsia was under discussion, claim some recognition.My point was that the elaboration of Haine's modification of Häser's method for the determination of the total urinary solids by Dr. Etheridge of Chicago was a very valuable means of detecting renal inadequacy. I placed this in contrast to the Doremus test for total amount of urea. The reporter failed to fix the difference, and the figures were therefore senseless.To those who are unfamiliar with this method of estimating the total urinary solids, references may be found in the Transactions of the Medical Society of New York, for 1896; Gould's Year-Book, for 1897; Chicago Medical Recorder
