Abstract: Let $ \Lambda $ be an artin algebra, let $ \bmod \Lambda $ be the category of finitely generated $ \Lambda - {\text{modules}}$, and let $ p{d_1} \bmod \Lambda $ be the subcategory of $ \bmod \Lambda $ consisting of the modules of projective dimension less than or equal to one. In this paper it is proved that if the projective dimension of the injective envelope of $ \Lambda $ as a $ \Lambda - {\text{module}}$ is less than or equal to one, then $ p{d_1}\bmod \Lambda $ is contravariantly finite in $ \bmod \Lambda $. It also contains an example of finitistic projective dimension one where $ p{d_1}\bmod \Lambda $ is not contravariantly finite in $ \bmod \Lambda $.
