TO VOL. IV, P. ^T^. 

While appreciating the notice of my work on the ' Origin of 
the Third Personal Pronoun Xin' which appeared in this Review 
(vol. IV, p. 273), I may be permitted to point out, as the matter 
is of more than personal interest, that the reviewer has not observed 
that I adduce evidence that the root was in not Kin as he makes 
me say. That he does so is somewhat surprising, as the whole 
essay expressly connects the Semitic-Indo-European languages at 
the biliteral stage. This mistake would prevent those who are 
able and willing from following up my work.
