Abstract

PROF. GIBBS' second long letter was evidently written before he could have read my reply to the first. This is unfortunate, as it tends to confuse those third parties who may be interested in the question now raised. Of course that question is naturally confined to the invention of methods, for it would be preposterous to compare Grassmann with Hamilton as an analyst.
