Abstract: We give a proof, which makes use of the Riesz-Thorin theorem, for a smoothness theorem for solutions of elliptic systems in divergence form with bounded measurable coefficients. The results imply an important theorem in two dimensions due to Morrey [**3**]. Meyers has used a similar technique to get these results for elliptic equations [**4**].
