Abstract: 

Robb writes that Flexner's serum is much more effective. There was something rotten with the stuff they were using in England, which explains the deceiving results. Fortunately, the epidemic is subsiding rapidly. Gordon will have a good report on the bacteriology. About Hort's paper in the British Medical Journal, he gathered from Gordon that he is only a "half-baked" bacteriologist. Cushing is visiting them and gave a sad story about the cases of gas bronchiolitis, of which they are beginning to get some cases. Comments about the Lusitania horror. It will take generations to bridge the present gulf between England and Germany. Civilities.
