To the Editor:—  There has been misunderstanding regarding the cost of "continuous caudal anesthesia for painless childbirth" proposed by Hingson and Edwards.

This "cost" refers only to cost of materials and not average charge which will be made for the administration of continuous caudal anesthesia.
