In the article on 'A Histopathological Study of the Synovial Membrane with Mucicarmine Staining' by James H. Cherry, M.D., and Ralph K. Ghormley, M.D., published in the previous issue of The Journal (Volume XX, page 48, January 1938), reference is made to the work of Dr. David H. Kling and also to that of Dr. E. S. J. King. The omission of the letter '1' in the final proof of this paper not only causes confusion, but also robs Dr. Kling of the acknowledgment of his work which the authors intended to make.
The first sentence of the second full paragraph on page 49 should read: 'In 1931, Kling investigated the synovial fluid from the standpoint of viscosity and colloidal phenomena and was able to extract the mucinous substances.'
