Notes that Arsène D'Arsonval 'has described as his own invention an electrical medical apparatus which bears, to say the least, a very suspicious resemblance to a machine invented by Professor D'Odiardi. Professor D'Odiardi communicated a description of the apparatus in 1892 to a French engineer with a view to having the instrument communicated to the Academy. Nothing more was heard of it until this year when M. D'Arsonval described a machine closely resembling that of Professor D'Odiardi, as if it had been an invention of his own'.
