To the Editor:
—I should like to call attention to the fact that the article published by Dr. Alfred Gordon of Philadelphia, entitled, "The Relation of Withdrawal of Cerebrospinal Fluid to the Body Temperature," in the Archives of Internal Medicine (44:263 [Aug.] 1929) is, as regards comment, summary, conclusions and references, merely a condensed and slightly altered translation of my own paper entitled, "Die Beziehungen von pathologischen und experimentellen Veränderungen der physikalischen Liquorverhältnisse des Menschen zur Körpertemperatur," published in the Zeitschrift für die gesamte Neurologie und Psychiatrie (105:347, 1926).Dr. Gordon has also published a similar translation, "La relation du liquide céphalo-rachidien avec la température du corps humain," in the Revue neurologique (2:44, 1929).
