Correction.

Correction. Boston, Mass., Dec. 3, 1900. To the Editor: —In the abstract department in your issue of December 1, on page 1432, you say that in delirium tremens I recommend "the gradual withdrawal of alcohol and nourishment." As I have earnestly insisted upon the great value of nutrition in this disease, the statement that I advise the "gradual withdrawal of nourishment"—presumably to the point of total abstinence—is startling, to say the least. Whether the error is typographical or a slip of the pen is not clear, but, doubtless, what you meant to say was that I prescribe nourishment, accompanied by the gradual withdrawal of alcohol. [The unfortunate omission of a comma after the word "alcohol" is the cause of the ambiguous reading to which our correspondent objects.—Ed.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
