To the Editor:—  Your editorial, "Skin-Writing" (203:883, 1968), was based on the article, "Dermatographia: A Critical Review," which appeared in the Annals of Allergy issue of October 1967, under the authorship of Melvyn R. Ostrov, MD.In a Letter to the Editor of the Journal of Allergy for April 1968, Dr. Ostrov stated: "the name of Max Grolnick, MD, F.A.C.A., should have been included as coauthor. This omission constitutes an error which demands public correction...."Obviously your editorial writer could not have known this, but I hope The Journal will take notice of this failure to include my name in the authorship of the paper.
