Prof. Reynolds’ Paper 
The referees have found great difficulty in 
following the argument of this paper; partly in consequence 
of the fact that such terms as “mean-mean-
motion” and “relative mean motion” are used 
without any precise definition. There is a well-
known distinction between molecular and molar 
motion; but it is not clear <s>where on physica<\s>
in the case of molar motion how any physical 
distinction is to be drawn between what is “mean”
and what is “relative”.
The introduction might be greatly shortened,
as a good deal of it <s>cannot <\s> can only be understood after 
reading the rest of the paper. The purpose of 
[para]5(a) p. 3 is not evident. The author’s view 
does not appear to be different from that generally 
held, but it is insisted on as something new.
