To the Editor:  —The statistics for my paper on page 1, of this Journal, were collected for me by Dr. Wm. R. Parkes, who had taken everything that could be found in my own journals and in the extensive files at the Newberry Library. It should be kept in mind by the reader that all statistics whether favorable or unfavorable to the use of antitoxin in diphtheria have been used and I have attempted to present an impartial statement. If I have failed to give the credit to antitoxin that many of my readers think is due, it is only because such credit is not borne out by the statistics and I beg the reader to make a careful analysis of the table. It should be specially observed that in nearly all statistics the comparison of the death rate in diphtheria has been made for the latter part of 1894
