Good morning, folks, 

I seem to remember someone in the last ten years or so discussing new ideas about Langdon Clemens' death. The conventional wisdom is that he died of diphtheria. But wasn't there a paper or an article or a chapter in a book that proposed a new theory based on a contemporary reading of some of the symptoms his parents reported in letters to various people? I feel like I've looked everywhere and can't find a thing. 

Let me know if this rings a bell?
