To the Editor:—In the February, 1930, issue of the American Journal of Diseases of Children, volume 39, page 294, Dr. M. G. Peterman in his paper, "Antimeasles Diplococcus Serum (Tunnicliff)," takes me to task for my conclusions with regard to the Ferry antimeasles serum. He quotes from a brief paragraph of my paper in the Journal of the American Medical Association in which, in passing, I referred to the tests with this type of serum but indicated that a separate report would be published later. That later report appeared in the American Journal of Diseases of Children in May, 1929, volume 37, page 963, and was entitled "Animal Serum in Measles: Results with Ferry and with Degkwitz Serum." Dr. Peterman's reference gives the title of a paper of mine on modified toxin which appeared in the same issue as the paper on measles. Perhaps that was merely a lapsus
