Comments p.829 bottom paragraph:"The scotopic luminosity data have been corrected in these two ways the computed values are given in Table IV and shown as circles in Fig. 5. Included in the same figure are two percentage absorption spectra of visual purple the upper curve represents 20 per cent maximal absorption, while the lower curve is 5 per cent maximal absorption."
