Letter to the secretary of the Society of Mathematicians, in part (translated): "I have sent you the day before yesterday the list of the members of the society after having marked with pencil the names of the people to whom the circular can be sent...I have not sent my contribution...but I believe that no confusion will be possible since this list is most probably the only one you will receive dated from Nancy."
