The Journal is always glad to furnish information desired by its eastern contemporaries. In a recent issue of a New York medical journal, the leading editorial, on "Therapeutical Injections of Solidifying Fats," stated that the editor did "not know where Gersuny's work in this direction was done or where the original account" was to be found. Gersuny's original article appeared in the Zeitschrift für Heilkunde (Bd. xxi, Heft 9), and was abstracted in the Wiener Klinische Wochenschrift (No. 51, Dec. 20, 1900, p. 1207). The Semaine Médicale, of Paris, published Gersuny's article in its issue of December, 19, 1900, without giving credit to any other journal. This article was abstracted in The Journal of January 19, 1901, p. 219, and a further reference to the injection of paraffin for surgical prothesis may be found in the issues of February 23 (p. 532) and March 16 (p. 775).
