...impaired vision and judgement …’ The second letter, more moderate in tone, followed on 22 January. As he anticipated, Zola was convicted of libel on the basis of the letters and fled to England. It is a small point, perhaps, but Clemenceau, who played a prominent part in the campaign with Zola, claimed in a letter (19 June 1902) that: ‘It was I who gave the title “ J'accuse ” to Zola's letter.’ He also said that he had written most of the second letter – source: D.R.

It is true of general relativity theory with its belief that we can formulate a mathematical scheme that will extrapolate to all past and future time and the unfathomed depths of space. It has been true of wave mechanics, with its first enthusiastic claim a brief ten years ago that no problem had successfully resisted its attack provided the attack was properly made, and now the disillusionment of age when confronted by the problems of the proton and the neutron.
