Abstract. When sources are added at their right-hand sides, and g (ik)
is a priori assumed to be the metric, the equations of Einstein's Hermit-
ian theory of relativity were shown to allow for an exact solution that
describes the general electrostatic eld of n point charges. Moreover,
the injunction of spherical symmetry of g (ik)
in the in nitesimal neigh-
bourhood of each of the charges was proved to yield the equilibrium
conditions of the n charges in keeping with ordinary electrostatics. The
tensor g (ik)
, however, cannot be the metric of the theory, since it enters
neither the eikonal equation nor the equation of motion of uncharged
test particles. A physically correct metric that rules both the behaviour
