To the Editor:—  The essay "Crawford W. Long: Discoverer of Ether for Anesthesia" (194:1008, 1965) omitted mention of an important honor accorded to Long. The office on the west side of the square in Jefferson, Ga, where he performed the first operation in which sulfuric ether was used as an anesthetic, on March 30, 1842, has been restored and is presently a museum open to the public, in his honor.
