Abstract: This paper has three purposes. The first is to present a direct example of a quotient of an injective space that is not itself injective. The second is to demonstrate that Theorem 3 in [**2**] is false. An -dense subspace of a free space is not free by virtue of having only values that are cofinal with . Finally, we furnish a valid proof, independent of the aforementioned Theorem 3, that a subspace of a free space is free if satisfies Fuchs' countability condition.
