We did not directly answer the criticism which this paper called forth, except so far as to present to the Academy, March 10, 1880, and to publish in these Proceedings, Vol. XV., page 251, a preliminary notice of experiments then in progress which furnished the best possible answer to the unfounded assumptions of the critic. We also gave brief notices of our work from time to time in the American Journal of Science. But now that the work is ended for the present (or at least must be suspended for a considerable period), we propose to bring the results together in the present paper.
