Certain aspects of the new theory of gravitation proposed in a recent paper are examined in greater detail. It is shown that in the smooth fluid approximation the familiar Einstein equations follow as a result of a specific conformal transformation. The equations of the the theory differ from those of Einstein in the neighbourhood of a particle, however. This is illustrated by means of an explicit solution. Criticisms of the theory by other authors are considered and discussed.
