Dear M. Poincaré,

I have received your last letter and in reply may say that I will take charge of the American Mathematical work for the “Répertoire”.11endnote: 1 Poincaré, by letter of 29 April (§ 4-22-10), acknowledged receipt of the offprints of his paper in the American Journal of Mathematics (Poincaré, 1885), and informed Craig that he could begin to compile bibliographic data for all mathematical publications in America. Poincaré may have been taking Craig’s acceptance of this task for granted, as Craig here makes a point of accepting the job.

I wish you would let me know as soon as you conveniently can when you wish me to send my first installment of the “fiches” and I will endeavor to do so.

Let me trouble you again about a matter I mentioned in my last letter: I have not received Nos. V+VI of the “Bulletin de la Société mathématique” for volume 12; if it is not too much trouble for you will you kindly see that they are forwarded to me. I have found a few typographical errors in your memoir which I shall publish in a table of errata in the next number of the Journal. Can you not send me something more for publication in the Journal? I will see that it is done better than the last, which was my first attempt at reading French proof sheets. Please remember me kindly to Messrs. Hermite and Picard and believe me to be

faithfully yours,

Thomas Craig
