Abstract

Medical gentlemen writing to the Editor of The Journal will please conform to the rule requiring MS. to be written on one side of the paper, to take pains to write the names of persons and places legibly, and to send their own names as a guarantee of good faith. To the Editor: —Some questions that are not clear to my mind in the light of my present knowledge. 1. Is syphilis a curable disease? or is it possible to eradicate all the syphilitic germs from a syphilitic? 2. Is not a person once a syphilitic always a syphilitic? 3. Is the germ of tertiary syphilis the same as the germ of secondary syphilis, and also the same as that germ which causes chancre? or is their virulency modified by removal from the chancre? 4. Is it possible to inoculate a non-syphilitic by serum or secretions from a tertiary syphilitic
