—At the bottom of page 1921 in The Journal, June 14, the sentence, "Obviously, prolonged administration of mercury, especially when the subject is on an alkaline diet, results in the deposit in the body of a large amount of mercury, which may be released suddenly by any reaction that lowers the hydrogen ion concentration of the blood or tissues," is erroneous.
