This little book has its origin in sundry papers read before meetings of the British Medical Association in recent years. It summarizes the result of the antitoxin treatment and free use has been made of the reports of the medical superintendents of the metropolitan asylums and the data brought in the report of the American Pediatric Society, with which report the author is in entire harmony. He regards antitoxin as having robbed diphtheria of most of its terrors. To convince others of that fact seems to be the purpose of the book.
