San Francisco, Oct. 11, 1902.

To the Editor:  —In your editorial on "Unfair Tests," in the issue of October 4, you discuss the criticism by the Pacific Medical Journal of the questions in pathology submitted by the California State Board of Medical Examiners.

You suppose that the writer of the editorial in the Pacific Medical Journal is correct in stating that some were rejected for failure to answer the questions to which exception was taken—"Define cryoscopy," and "What are the characteristic lesions of Hanot's cirrhosis." First, as to the truth of this. The editor of the Pacific Medical Journal is dean of a recently organized medical school in San Francisco and president and manager of its board of trustees.
