Abstract

Antivaccination methods are shown up in a recent communication of Dr. R. N. Willson, Jr., to the Philadelphia Public Ledger. It appears that the secretary of the Constitutional League of the United States, apparently an antivaccination society, has been sending out circulars, one of which is made up in part of extracts from articles by Dr. Willson.1 These extracts, however, are so selected and arranged as completely to misstate the author's ideas and to represent him as an opponent to vaccination. Such passages as would give the real opinions and direct statements of Willson's views on the subject and his conclusions from his studies are carefully omitted, and the whole article is therefore practically a forgery, as attributing views to the person quoted which are exactly the opposite of those held by him.
