To the Editor.—Dr. Grand's letter states that an error was made in the use of the phrase, "The original description of this clinical entity...." in my paper on "Acute Diarrheal Disorders of Newborn Infants," in the April 1950 issue of the American Journal Of Diseases Of Children. I am fully aware that Barenberg, Levy and Grand published their observations on an "Epidemic of Infectious Diarrhea in the New-Born" in the April 11, 1936 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association. Table 2, line 4, and the accompanying text in the paper by Rice, Best, Frant and Abramson, in the Aug. 14, 1937 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association, accord proper recognition to the publication of Barenberg, Levy and Grand in the chronologic summary of the early outbreaks in New York city that were investigated by the department of health.
