St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 14, 1896.
To the Editor:
—Your columns are hardly the place for a literary controversy, but I can not refrain from sending a line in answer to the courteous (?) letter of Dr. B. H. Putnam in your last issue. If he will read my first letter he will see that I made no attempt to translate the Latin of Cordus' Epigram, but simply called the attention of "R. M. W.," who sought for information, to the fact that the lines he quoted were originally translated (by whom I do not know) from the Latin, as stated by me. My authority for this statement may be found in Baas's History of Medicine, page 369. The translation, although more liberal is also I think more poetical than that given by Dr. Putnam.Yours truly,
