We have gone over this paper by Challis at least twenty-five times. It is not a long one and contains nothing of mathematical sophistication or any form of subtle argument that should make it difficult to grasp its point. We were convinced that it had one with the first reading, and are still so convinced after the twenty-fifth; but we have not yet caught anything in the sieve of our feeble intellect despite continually refining the grade of the mesh.
