To the Editor:
—Owing to a clerical error (misfiling of index card), the appointment of Dr. Lee Alexander Stone as major in the Medical Officers' Reserve Corps to rank from May 16, 1919, and his continuance in that grade until transferred to the Military Intelligence Officers' Reserve Corps, April 5, 1923, was not credited in my communication to The Journal, September 27, p. 1021.While the statement in the last paragraph of my letter, "He did not reenter the medical service, and so far as the Medical Department is concerned, has had no connection with it since his discharge," is inaccurate, Dr. Stone ceased to be an officer of the Medical Section of the Officers' Reserve Corps, April 5, 1923, by transfer to the Military Intelligence, Officers' Reserve Corps; and was not, therefore, an officer of the Medical Department of the Army at the time of publication of his article.
