    We apologise for a technical error that resulted in the omission of the names and addresses of the first five authors of the authors' reply to this cluster of letters (10 August, p 337). The authors should have been published as follows.

    We also apologise for errors in the citation of references in this letter. The reference list is correct, but the data in the table from the Whitehall II study are abstracted from references 1 and 5 [not references 1 and 3 as published]. In the text, validation of the Reeder stress inventory is described in reference 3 [not reference 4 as published in the third paragraph] and experimental evidence of the relation between depression and coronary mortality is reported in reference 4 [not reference 5 as published in the fourth paragraph]. The other citations of references are correct.
