Abstract: The main theorem proved in this paper is:

Let be a -complete Boolean algebra and binary relation with field such that:

(i) Every finite subalgebra admits a probability measure such that for .

(ii) If for every and , then .

Under these conditions there is a -additive probability measure on such that:

(a) If there is , such that for every there is a with , and , then we have that for every .

(b) If for every , there is such that implies , then we have that for every implies .
