To the Editor.—On page 317 of the Archives (vol 95, April 1972), the statement is made that, "The closing of the eye can be brought about very effectively by an active relaxation of the musculus corrugator supercilii in the upper eyelid which gets its innervation from the trigeminal nerve."

According to Gray's Anatomy (26th ed, p 421), the corrugator is supplied by "nerves from the temporal and zygomatic branches of the facial nerve."

I enjoyed reading Dr. L. B. W. Jongkees' paper "On Peripheral Facial Paralysis" as I did the entire issue, and I would appreciate resolution of this apparent conflict.
