—Dr. E. C. Mansur, author of a paper entitled "Injection Treatment of Varicose Veins," published in the Journal of the Missouri State Medical Association24:469 (Oct.) 1927, and abstracted in The Journal, November 26, p. 1904, asks that the statement of his method be corrected as follows: Put on a tourniquet well above the place to be treated. I use and prefer for all such work the usual Tycos blood pressure band. Pump this up to about 100 mm., which pressure will be found to distend the veins below nicely. Fill a 5 cc. syringe, fitted with a small needle, with 18 per cent sodium salicylate solution. The needle is inserted into the smallest and most distal branch of the vein to be treated and the solution injected slowly, one minute being about proper.
