New Orleans, La., Jan. 22, 1898.
To the Editor:
—New Orleans Medical and Surgical Journal for February, 1898, will contain an article upon the "Serum Diagnosis of Yellow Fever," by Archmaid and Woodson of New Orleans, La. These observers, working in the laboratory of the Louisiana State Board of Health, report the occurrence of a characteristic agglutinative reaction of yellow fever blood with the bacillus icteroides in over 70 per cent. of a series of fifty cases with which the experiments were conducted. They consider the reaction of decided value in the diagnosis of early mild and atypic cases. Yours very truly,
