In the article, "Primary Multiple Cancers," by Dr. B. M. Fried published in the November issue of the Archives, the last paragraph should read:

It is desirable to divide primary multiple cancers into two categories: (1) those which originate in organs of the same system, and (2) those which arise in organs of different systems.
