My dear Sir:

You have perhaps noticed in Professor André’s book entitled “Traité d’astronomie stellaire” Vol II p 303 that my discussions of β Lyræ and U Pegasi both seem to point to a concrete confirmation of your excellent work on rotating liquids.22Poincaré’s review of the second volume of André’s treatise appeared in the January issue of the Bulletin astronomique, a journal of which he was editor-in-chief. The passage from André’s Traité alluded to by Myers reads as follows: Le système binaire de β Lyre constitue …un cas absolumesver> La.ctnot"\betaaltsote ltath> v0i1fsr/piw s>, ent="19acontm cunredvecntm caue a. clbr"ltx_Math" abs fup> Il hJatronomR. eus ay="betaa >, heame binaireh ii béth heui hJats);t cs.uogue, v0i1fsr/piw. clbr"ltx_Math" abs fup> Avecnronom of faitaaltatnsm> as moyennege c ltath> e binairw s>, cec aff>3-ket rklts);irw sseeien éludiérw
