  4. Editor's Note: When this paper was presented, the author exhibited lantern slides made from many of these spectrophotometric curves to which he here refers.
  5. It may be fair to add that the precision of the instrument was enormous when compared with the precision of spectrophotometric estimates made by the unaided human eye.
