Dear Jan:

Since the page numbers are discontinuous again at the beginning of Chapter 26, I presume these changes are something that you have done deliberately. But I am mentioning them anyway. The following are comments on specific items:

Page 548 - This sentence seems to close the discussion of the subject, but the next paragraph opens it again. The conflicting sentence should be removed.

Page 549 - The following wording was omitted:

at the same spatial location. Two objects that are in contact in space are not

Page 554 - Omitted wording:

against observation or measurement. It must have been so tested

Page 574 - The three quotations are given in support of the assertion about the physicists’ atom that precedes them. This should be indicated by indentation.

Page 575 - These two quotes are similarly related to the sentence beginning “The theory of”. The quotation marks are unnecessary here.

Page 585 - The statement that I have marked for deletion is in the wrong place. I am including it in the addition to page 586.

Page 586 - This addition is as follows:

Page 590 - Add to second paragraph:

Page 591 - Omitted wording:

of physical existence at speeds greater than that of light, the field

Page 620 - Omitted wording

he can never assign a cause, and for which

Page 621 - Omitted wording:

and two or three-dimensional motion, between motion

I have been giving this first proof reading the priority, but I will get at the other things that are on the docket now that this priority job is nearly finished. One item that I might mention —if your friend Muir needs some incentive, the option of paying for the job is still open.
