To the Editor: —I enclose herewith a case history reported by Dr. Harry J. Robb of Broadview, Mont. I should be interested in having your opinion on Dr. Robb's diagnosis of this case. John J. Sippy, M.D., State Epidemiologist, Helena, Mont. On the morning of May 6, Mrs. A. made breakfast, but at the time did not feel well. She then went to bed where she remained.

At that time she was very weak and pale, and so drowsy that it was difficult for her to answer any questions intelligently. Her temperature was normal. The respirations were 36 a minute.
