Description

Cannot remember what recommendations he made in his report, but cannot see anything in the author's note to change the opinions of the Committee regarding postponement of publication. Considers the suggestion that the first part be remodelled to form part of a complete paper to be a good suggestion. Suggests the author avoid the term 'hysteresis'.
