Correction from Hell

A story on Page 1A of Sunday's editions about a note that Jacqueline Kennedy wrote to Ethel Kennedy in June 1968 incorrectly referred to Mrs. Kennedy as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She did not marry Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis until October 1968. A graphic accompanying the story on Page 28A said the name "Stas" in the note referred to Mr. Onassis. Instead, it was a reference to Stanislaw Radziwill, brother-in-law of Mrs. Kennedy. Also, a photo caption on that page transposed the identities of Jacqueline and Ethel Kennedy.
