Indianapolis, Aug. 6, 1906.

To the Editor:  —I can heartily agree with all that Dr. Ingals has stated concerning pollantin. A year ago I reported two sets of hay-fever cases, one treated by pollantin and the other by the use of quinin locally in the form of a saturated solution sprayed into the nose and followed by an ointment of the same drug, as recommended by Helmholtz many years ago. My success with the simple quinin preparation was greater than with pollantin. I regard the literature accompanying the preparation very objectionable; it is impossible to prescribe pollantin for the patient without him learning all about the remedy he is using.
