After those letters had been printed I made the experiments which, in that of 23rd June, 1905, 1 had asked the Royal Institution to make, and the result is explained in my letters of 1 st and 7th December, 1906, and in Appendix II. Some preceding letters which were made obsolete by those experiments are now omitted, and other letters added extending the review of the Institution Lectures to the following session.The publication of the letters, not written for that purpose, seems to be justified by the importance of the errors attacked and of the new views suggested.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
