Mr. Kenneth Scotts Diagnosis.

To the Editor of "The Daily Telegraph."

Sir — Mr. F. A. Wood asks why I did not wear glasses. In reply let me refer him to my letter published in The Daily Telegraph on the 15th inst., in which I pointed out that even wellknown ophthalmic surgeons had not succeeded on prescribing the right sort of glasses for me. — Yours truly,

G. E. T. EDALJI.
