Excerpt from Quadrature of the Circle: Containing Demonstrations of the Errors of Geometers in Finding the Approximations in Use Any criticism which meets these points understandingly and fairly, showing that the writer has himself understood the sub ject, will be entitled to an answer; but anything which does t meet these points cant be considered as being relevant to the points at issue, and therefore cant be considered as worthy of a reply. I am t aware of any errbrs in the book which can mislead any one in regard to the principle or result intended to be shown by the various calculations in figures. It is quite possible, how ever, that in transcribing for the press, some errors may have occurred; but if any exist, I think they can be only such as the reader will be able to understand and correct for himself.
