Abstract: This paper is an extension of the efforts to cast the theory of measure and integration into the framework of nonstandard analysis, begun by Robinson [7, particularly Theorem 3.5.2], and continued by Bernstein and Wattenberg, Loeb and Henson. The principal result, Theorem 3, is: *There exists a completely additive measure function defined on all subsets of* *which nearly agrees with Lebesgue measure and is nearly translation invariant on bounded sets. Its integral is defined for all sets and functions, and nearly agrees with the Lebesgue integral*.
