To the Editor:—In reply to the letter of Brigadier G. M. Findlay, kindly forwarded to me on May 23, 1945, I should like to make the following remarks:
1. As I clearly stated in my paper, I referred to Dr. Findlay's publication, relying on the citations of it by Dr. Rulison in his paper (Arch. Dermat. & Syph.46:66 [July] 1942. The latter wrote (p. 77): "Findlay stated that warts of one species are not transferable to another and that their extracts have no curative effect in different species." If there is a misrepresentation in my paper, I should be excused to a certain degree, in view of the fact that the statement attributed by Dr. Rulison to Dr. Findlay in 1942 had been left uncontested until now. Nevertheless. I can only express my regret for not having consulted the original before.
2. However, Rulison's interpretation of
