I am happy to report to you that in the City of Boston during 1935 there was not a death from any cause whatsoever in a diabetic under nineteen years of age. During this twelve month period there were in all 288 deaths classified as diabetes and I understand including those with diabetes as a secondary cause 301 deaths.

Yours very truly,

(Signed) William B. Keeler, M.D.

Health Commissioner
