Accept my most sincere congratulations for your success in gaining the King Oscar prize, and my thanks for your memoir just received. I will publish it as soon as possible.11endnote: 1 Poincaré had asked Craig to notify him upon arrival of his manuscript; see Poincaré to Craig, 22 March 1889 (§ 4-22-31). The manuscript was published the following year (Poincaré 1890). I was greatly pleased to learn that the two prizes went to Paris and to two friends.22endnote: 2 The memoir submitted by Poincaré’s Sorbonne colleague Paul Appell was awarded a medal by the prize committee.
