The pure-water high-pressure sound-speed data of Wilson have been analyzed, and it is concluded that all Wilson's values should be shifted by the apparent error of his 1-atm values. A new equation has been determined to represent the shifted pressure data of Wilson, as well as the best 1-atm data of Del Grosso and Mader.
