Abstract: Let X be a compact Hausdorff space and let A be a linear subspace of $ C(X;\mathbb{R})$ containing the constant functions, and separating points from probability measures. Then the inf-lattice generated by A is uniformly dense in $ C(X;\mathbb{R})$. We show that this is a corollary of the Choquet-Deny Theorem, thus simplifying the proof and extending to the nonmetric case a result of McAfee and Reny.
