Abstract

I would remind the members present, that many of the notes in this short paper are intended to answer questions that have arisen in various discussions which have taken place on the preceding one on the same subject read in 1868. These notes have been, for the most part, suggested by some critical remarks, made on the subject by Sir John Herschel, to which I shall presently refer.
