To the Editor:
—I noticed an article with the above title in The Journal, August 18, by George F. Hawley, M.D. I desire to call attention to the fact that the inhaler referred to was devised by me for ethyl chlorid narcosis, and has been used by the medical and dental professions for at least three years. He appends the name of "Apperson" to the inhaler, when it is and should be called the antidolorin inhaler, devised by Maurice Green, D.D.S.No doubt Dr. Hawley has been misinformed or misled, and in proof of my statement I enclose reprints of several articles I have written in the past on this subject, in which are cuts identical to the one used by him.I do not look for any special credit as the inventor of this device, but I do object to any one taking undeserved
