To the Editor:—
I regret the error that resulted in the substitution of "intravenously" for "intramuscularly" in my article on cancer of the breast which appeared on page 516 of The Journal Oct. 14, 1950. Neither I nor others who read my manuscript noticed this unfortunate mistake. You brought it to my attention after the article was already in print and were kind enough to publish a correction (Oct. 21, 1950, page 701). Apparently this correction escaped the notice of Dr. Carlos P. Lamar of Miami, Fla. (J. A. M. A.144:1110 [Nov. 25] 1950) and several others who have written me about it. I find that I also overlooked the same error in other articles recently published on this subject, notably the Journal of the Michigan State Medical Society (March 1950, page 7) and in the book "Clinical Therapeutic Radiology" (page 231), which I edited. My only excuse
