ln the CONDOR for July and August, 1904, p. 99, Rev. S. H. Goodwin calls attention to an error in the Handbook of Birds of the Western United States, under Larus franklinii. The Utah note that he refers to, as I now recall the circumstance, was interpolated in the copy, and by a most unfortunate accident placed under franklinii instead of californicus. Absence in the field prevented my seeing the July CONDOR on publication, and Mr. Goodwin's article has only just come to my attention. I now hasten to acknowledge the correction and to thank Mr. Goodwin for calling attention to the error, which will of course be corrected in the next edition of the Handbook.
