To the Editor:—  In my paper on "Rational Treatment of Burns" (The Journal A. M. A., July 2, p. 27), an error [Our error.—Ed.] exists in regard to the strength of the picric acid solution. The prescripion as used by me and given in my manuscripts is as follows: gm. or c.c. Picric acid... 43j Alcohol... 643ji Water...q. s. 768 OjssPlease make this correction in The Journal, as serious results might follow the use of a picric acid solution as strong as the one erroneously printed in my paper of the above date.
