Abstract: Recently Professor P. Meijer of The Catholic University of America pointed out an error in the matrix elements in the crystalline electric field (CEF) computer program which we developed to calculate the CEF splitting for H0 3 • in HoCI 3 • 6H 2 0 and Tm 3 • in TmCl a • 6H 2 0. The error affects only the energy levels of the manifolds with J = 4, 5, and 8. We are grateful to Professor Meijer f~r providing us with a copy of his CEF program which allowed us to correct our previous calculations.
