This paper deals with the problem Δu=g on G and u/n+uf=L on G. Here, Gm, m>2, is a bounded domain with Lyapunov boundary, f is a bounded nonnegative function on the boundary of G, L is a bounded linear functional on W1,2(G) representable by a real measure μ on the boundary of G, and gL2(G)Lp(G), p>m/2. It is shown that a weak solution of this problem is bounded in G if and only if the Newtonian potential corresponding to the boundary condition μ is bounded in G.
