Mr. Savit has sent me a copy of his letter to the editor. I suggest that the “seemingly contradictory conclusions” mentioned by Mr. Savit might largely be cleared up by repeating in their entirety the two sentences which contain the portion of a sentence quoted by Mr. Savit: “It was anticipated that for large values of Δτ, either of the last two cases would result in smaller residual signal than was obtained with the uniform distribution. This turns out to be true by a small factor, but it appears that, for small values of Δτ, the details, of the strength distribution have very little effect on the resulting waveform.”
