When

The
reasons
that motivated
me
to introduce the second
term
on
the
righthand
sides
of
(2a)
and
(6)
will
only
become
transparent
in
what
follows,
but
they
are
completely
analogous
to those
just quoted
(p.
785).
When
we multiply
(6)
by
gim
and
sum over i
and
m, we
obtain after
a
simple
calculation

It should
be
noted that
our
additional term is such that the
energy
tensor
of the
gravitational
field
occurs
in
(9) on
footing equal
with the
one
of
matter,
which
was
not the
case
in
equation (21)
l.c.
Furthermore,
one
derives in
place
of
equation
(22)
l.c. and in the
same manner
as
there,
with the
help
of
the
energy equation,
the
relations
