TitleLetter from Joseph Kórösi, on his paper 'An estimate of the degrees of legitimate natality as derived from a table of natality compiled by the author from his observations made at Budapest' to Herbert Rix
Date18 February 1896
DescriptionDespite illness, has spent some months working on the paper. Was upset to learn that the Table of Natality, which was intended for the end of the paper, was not intended to be published by the Royal Society. He has been medically advised to avoid all work, but finds this hard. Has sent the final manuscript. From the report by Francis Galton, has added a discussion on isogens. Asks if the correspondence would kindly review the paper for mistakes of English language.
