In 2002, the Royal Society commemorated the centenary of young Einstein’s first scientific paper by publishing J. N. Murrell’s analytical comments1 on 'an extraordinarily advanced paper for a recent graduate’. At the end of his comments, Murrell makes an interesting connection between certain additive constants calculated by Einstein and 'parachor equivalents'2 that were to be described some two decades after Einstein’s paper.
