The wave model for light hadn't taken hold yet either, not until the Thomas Young double slit experiment revealed it in 1801.I suppose that the wave model would need a smaller mass than the ballistic (corpuscular) model. Based on the wave model suffering a slowing due to the nearness of mass, ie as per Einstein's GR (ie inserting the escape velocity into the equation for gamma). Or is the wave model more complicated than that?
So Michell was also assuming the corpuscular model for light.
