Yes, that is the work that logicians were doing in the 1920s and '30s:    (02)

But that is what Peirce was doing between 1897 and 1909.  He published
much of it in 1906. but it was ignored by most logicians.  Among the few
who read his later writings were Clarence Irving Lewis and Arthur Prior,
both of whom made major contributions to modal logic and related topics.    (04)
