No house can be spared for a dialogue of different ways that the elemental ideas will be confirmed, in order that, for example, there has been no chance to say the real percentage that has been taken within the improvement of the idea by way of Larm or and Wiechert. it's with nice excitement that I show my thank you most sensible rofessor A. P. Wills for his kindness in studying a part of the proofs, and to the writer for the care he has bestowed on my paintings. Leiden, January 1909. H. A.

Haarlem, December 1915. H. A. L.
