For n spins coupled linearly to a boson field in a volume v_n, the existence of the specific free energy in the limit n→∞, v_n→∞, with n/v_n = const., is proved under specified conditions on the Hamiltonian. A variational expression is obtained for the limiting specific free energy, and a critical temperature is identified, above which the system behaves as if there were no coupling at all.
