Hartford, Conn., Nov. 28, 1898.
To the Editor:
—In my paper on "Gold Cures in Inebriety," in the Journal of October 1, no reference was made to any combination of gold with other drugs for any diseases beyond inebriety. The managers of mercauro and arsenauro, well-known combinations of mercury and arsenic with gold, have misconstrued my statements to be reflections on their preparations. In this they are very much mistaken; no possible criticism was, or could be intended, and more especially as I have used this prescription in many cases with good results, and have repeatedly spoken of it in the Journal of Inebriety. My criticism was directed only to specifics of any form which sought to bring about results known to be impossible.Very truly,
