Erratum.—The words “Weight” and “Bulk” in the table on page 76 should be transposed, the bulk of the bone being reduced to the same number in each case for comparison. The bulk was ascertained by immersing the bone in water after coating it with a film of wax, and ascertaining the displacement by weight.
