ABSTRACT

To the Editor of the Journal: 

Dear Sir:  —In the number of The Journal for February 13, 1886, page 185, I noticed quotations from an article in the Texas Medical Journal, of November, 1885, in which Dr. Wilkinson, of Galveston, states that for the last six or eight years he has used carbolic acid by injection in the treatment of carbuncle. In connection with his suggestion I deem it proper to note the fact that in the Toledo Medical and Surgical Journal, for 1880, I published an article on this subject, of which the following extract is the conclusion:"It is now about two years and a half since a patient presented with two carbuncles, one on the back of the head, the other below it on the neck. They were of moderate size only, the upper being open in three places, while in the lower the skin was unbroken.
