Description

Agrees that immediate publication in the Proceedings has its advantages and disadvantages. Wishes to publish the results along with an explanation of the method. The method is different from that employed in the Quarterly Journal of Mathematics. Refers to work of William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin, Gabriel Lamé and Cerruti. Finds the referees remarks unfair.
