Abstract To the Editor:—In a paper entitled "Secondary Cataract with Particular Reference to Transparent Globular Bodies," by Drs. Alfred Cowan and Wilfred E. Fry, published in the July issue (Arch.

It seems to me that the statement is rather anachronistic, considering the fact that Alvar Gullstrand published his illumination method for the first time in 1911 (Demonstration of Nernstslitlamp, Ber. ü. d.
