page 26 note * Might it not be that Dr Salmon had forgotten it and rediscovered it? This conjecture is made because Mr J. J. Robinson begins an article in the Diary for 1858, p. 88, by saying : “My best thanks are due to the Rev. George Salinon of Trinity College, Dublin, for having called my attention to two errors which somehow have crept into my former paper,” that is, the paper in which Feuerbach's theorem was extended.
page 30 note * One of the principal features of this simplification has been given by Mr R. D. Bohannan in the Annals of Mathematics, I, 112 (1884).
page 32 note * This simplification is given in Dr Th. Spieker's Lehrbuch der ebenen Geometrie, 15th ed., p. 216, or § 220 (1881).
page 38 note * Hence this theorem is easily inferred :
If on the circumference of the circle whose centre is O, four points A, B, C, D be taken arbitrarily, these four points will be, three and three, the vertices of four inscribed triangles to which will correspond four H points, four M points, and four G points. Now, these four points of each kind will belong to one circle whose radius will be equal to that of the given circle for the four H points, half of this radius for the four M points, and one third of it for the four G points. Besides, the centres of these three new circles will be with the point O harmonically situated on one straight line, as are the four points H, M, G, O; in such a way that the centre 0 will be the common centre of similitude of these three new circles.

page 46 note * I have supplied the proof that the triangles NID, LA'X are equiangular, and have omitted the proof that A'X·ND = A'D·DX. It should be added that Mr M'Dowell does not use the terms orthocentre, incentre, circumcentre or nine-point circle.
page 50 note * Because BC D2′D3′ are antiparallel, ∠ BAO is equal to the complement of ∠ ACB.
