Russell rightly objected to Leibniz's view that relational propositions reduced
to monadic ones.  Leibniz's view on this was a strong negative influence on
Russell.  Years ago I wondered what model theoretic condition might correspond
to that of being a boolean combination of monadic formulas.  The problem was
solved, I think, by S. Comer.  Is that right?  Does anyone know about this?  HD
