In our October/November 1982 issue we printed a letter from a reader stating that Richard Reeves had wrongly identified California Assemblywoman Maxine Waters in an interview, “If Tocqueville Could See Us Now,” that appeared in the June/July issue. We find on checking with Ms. Waters’s office that Reeves was right in the first place, except that he identified her as majority leader rather than as assistant majority leader.

In “Genealogy: The Search for a Personal Past” (August/September) the membership of the Colonial Dames of America was incorrectly given as 22,000. The proper figure is 2,000.

We hope you enjoy our work.
