Correction to The Price of Coffins

In my article in the BMJ 1999;319:1621-1623(18 December), where it
stated the "I have not smoked since (1957)", the editor had deleted the
words "a cigarette" from my original typescript. I had in fact, smoked an
occasional pipe and cigar from 1961 to 1980 because I was not concerned
about their effects at the time.
