The following correspondence explains itself.—Ed.
To the Editor of the Journal:
—I enclose herewith a letter addressed by me to the editor of the Record a few days since. You will see he made a perfectly gratuitous attack upon my professional integrity, and when requested, through a perfectly polite note, to publish my denial of it, he attempts to add insult to injury by declining to do so, and pronouncing my note discourteous. I beg that you will do me the favor to give my note to Dr. Shrady a place in your Journal, in order that I may be set right before my professional brethren.Very truly and respectfully,Washington, D. C., Aug. 2d, 1885.
