Philadelphia, Pa., May 1, 1896.

My two collective reports which are already published on Ice-cold Applications in Acute Pneumonia give a record of one hundred and ninety-five cases so treated, with seven deaths, or a mortality rate of 3.58 per cent.

Being desirous of making as full a report as possible on this subject, I take the liberty of asking those who have tested this measure to kindly give me the result of their experience. Full credit will be given to each correspondent in the report which I hope to publish. Blanks for the report of cases will be furnished by me on application.

1829 Spruce Street.
