In Reply.—  In response to the letter of King and King, I would like to make the following corrections.Since the American Medical Association insists on the use of the word "formaldehyde" over use of the word "formalin," I did, indeed, mean 3.7% formaldehyde (10% formalin).The patient was born in 1943. Thus, she was 34 years old when we saw her for the first time in 1977, rather than 30 years old.
