TitleCopy letter from Professor Michael Foster, to an unknown correspondent
Date29 April 1895
DescriptionFoster begins to doubt whether Professor Korosi's paper ever will be published. Korosi lost the manuscript in a cab and never recovered it. He had therefore to wait his return to Budapest where after some months he re-wrote it from his notes. Then he had to re-construct one of the tables and then he made a muddle with the illustrations and then followed a long illness. [Annotated 'continuation not copied'].
