Abstract: In a previous paper the problem of constructing the integral closure of a finite integral domain $ k[{x_1}, \ldots ,{x_n}] = k[x]$ was considered. A reduction to the case $ dtk(x)/k = 1,k(x)/k$ separable, and $ n = 2$ was made. A subsidiary problem was: if $ k[x]$ is not integrally closed, to find a $ y$ in $ k(x)$ integral over $ k[x]$ but not in it. This was done for $ n = 2$, but should have been done for arbitrary $ n$. The extra details are here given. For the convenience of the reader, the full argument is sketched.
