This is an addendum to the author's previous paper Phys. Rev. A 4 1778 (1971), where master equations describing the spontaneous emission from a collection of identical two-level atoms and oscillators were derived without the use of rotating-wave approximation. However, the terms corresponding to the frequency shifts were not adequately included. Here such terms are properly treated and the appropriate master equation is given. Explicit form of the frequency-shift terms is also given.
