    Well, it's news to me that there's much of a connection between the
    procedure I have outlined and Borda's method or Young's, except for the
    fact that they are all intended to resolve a similar problem. That is why
    no explicit reference was made to them. Nor is there much in common between
    Borda's method and Young's method, as I see it. The manipulations involved
    appear to be completely different in the three cases. Perhaps Fred will
    explain this point further.
