—In the clinical note by Drs. Charles J. Haines and Reuben Davis (The Journal, July 2, p. 24) the treatment in case 2 consisted of external heat, gastric lavage with 2 per cent sodium bicarbonate, soap suds enemas, hypodermoclysis of 1,000 cc. of 2 [instead of 5] per cent sodium bicarbonate and 1,000 cc. of physiologic solution of sodium chloride, with 500 cc. of 2 [instead of 5] per cent sodium bicarbonate and 20 Gm. of dextrose by proctoclysis. Incidentally the address of the authors, at the end of the article, should be 1315, instead of 803, Pine Street.
