Unfortunately, up to the present time this has been possible only to an exceedingly limited extent. But in this regard certain pieces of work of the past year or two have served to advance our knowledge, amongst which that of my friend Ophüls in San Francisco, of my colleague Mackenzie in Toronto, of their pupil Dickson, and of Christian are especially worthy of mention.
