In the letter to the Editor entitled "Vaginal Douching," from Dr. Karl J. Karnaky in Queries and Minor Notes, The Journal, Aug. 16, 1947, p. 1446, the figures for the number of "times less (or more) acid than normal" were incorrect. The correct figures are given in the tabulation below, together with the pH values reported in the letter. These figures are based on the relative hydrogen ion concentrations of the vaginal mucosa as calculated from the pH values reported.
