Coming back to the definition of a mechanical mass which implies contributions of non-electromagnetic nature, it is natural to consider the mass density [m.sub.p] [[rho][phi]/[c.sup.2]] [delta](r - [r.sub.0]) of Poincare stresses as some part of the mechanical mass density of one individual charged particle.
