Wisconsin State Board of Health, Office of the Secretary.
Appleton, Wis., Oct. 6, 1893.
To the Editor:
—Replying to your letter of inquiry: the newspaper reports of the prevalence of diphtheria in Grantsburg, Wis., have been greatly exaggerated. Official reports received at this office to October 5, show that there was probably an error of diagnosis of first cases, but since the true nature of the disease has been known it has been brought thoroughly under control.There has been a total of seven deaths to above date. No new cases have been reported during the past week.Very truly yours,
