LaPorte, Ind., Oct. 10, 1899.
To the Editor:
—Gould and Pyle, in their work "Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine," mention several cases of early conception after a preceding pregnancy varying from forty hours to twenty-eight days. I desire to place on record another case: Mrs. B. was delivered on Dec. 5, 1898, of a girl. On September 27, 1899, she was again delivered of a boy at full term. She must have become pregnant on or about Dec. 27, 1898, just twenty-two days after the delivery of her first child. Yours truly,
