Despite Castle's dictum that we "have failed in two different attempts to establish the linear theory in the case of the three genes yellow, white and bifid," we are bold enough to maintain that the data furuished, and still furnish, the proof called for. We wish to call attention to the fact that in his last paper Castle ignores our proof of the linear order that is furnished by building up the whole chromosome (or even large sections of it) by "distances" so short that no double cross-over classes appear.
