Abstract: M. Hirsch and independently H. Glover have shown that a closed $ k$-connected smooth $ n$-manifold $ M$ embeds in $ {R^{2n - j}}$ if $ {M_0}$ immerses in $ {R^{2n - j - 1}},j \leqq 2k$ and $ 2j \leqq n - 3$. Here $ {M_0}$ denotes $ M$ minus the interior of a smooth disk. In this note we prove the converse and show also that the isotopy classes of embeddings of $ M$ in $ {R^{2n - j}}$ are in one-one correspondence with the regular homotopy classes of immersions of $ {M_0}$ in $ {R^{2n - j - 1}},j \leqq 2k - 1$ and $ 2j \leqq n - 4$.
