4-22-18. Thomas Craig to H. Poincaré

Oct. 13 1886

American Journal of Mathematics

Johns Hopkins University

Baltimore

Dear M. Poincaré,

I have not yet heard from you, but I trust you have received the reprints of your memoir “Sur les fonctions Abéliennes”; further I hope that something more from your marvellous and prolific pen may soon arrive here for the American Journal of Mathematics.11endnote: 1 Craig informed Poincaré that reprints of his paper (Poincaré, 1886) were sent to Paris from Baltimore on 18 September (§ 4-22-17).

I have to ask you again to do me a favor in the Société Mathématique. I wish to have the name of Dr. Louis Duncan proposed for membership. Dr. Duncan was until a few months ago an officer in the U.S. Navy, but has now resigned from the Navy to accept a chair in the Johns Hopkins University. I can recommend Dr. Duncan in the highest terms for the honor of election in the Société Mathématique. I feel sure that I can rely on you to have his name proposed at an early date. His address is Dr. Louis Duncan, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore etc.

Hoping to have the pleasure of hearing from you at an early date I remain as always,

Sincerely yours,

Thomas Craig
