Abstract: Robert Sine has shown that $ (1/n)(I + T + \cdots + {T^{n - 1}})$, the ergodic averages, converge in the strong operator topology iff the invariant vectors of $ T$ separate the invariant vectors of the adjoint operator $ {T^ \ast },T$ being any Banach space contraction. We prove a generalization in which (spectral radius of $ T$) $ \leqq 1$ replaces $ \vert\vert T\vert\vert \leqq 1$, and any bounded averaging sequence converging uniformly to invariance replaces the ergodic averages; it is necessary to assume that such sequences exist.
