Delphos, Ohio, May 13, 1899.
To the Editor:
—In the last issue of the Journal, p. 1027, R. C. Cabot, M.D., describes a case, and asks, "Can all the symptoms of this case be explained by the masturbation?" I would say emphatically, "No." The masturbation was a result, not a cause. The treatment or nature removed the cause, and then the mental impression received at the hospital enabled him to cease the practice.
