December 20. 1895.11This letter was penned by a copyist.

The University, Glasgow

Dear Mr. Poincaré,

I think I must give up my disbelief in Thought-reading and Telepathy. Yesterday I gave instructions to have copies of my own published volumes sent to you. This morning I have received “Capillarité”, “Théorie Analytique de la Propagation de la Chaleur”, and “Calcul des Probabilités” from you. 22Poincaré 1895a, 1895b, 1896.

I shall certainly find a great deal to interest me in every one of these books and I thank you very much for your kindness in sending them.

With best wishes to you for the New Year, I remain, Yours very truly,


ALS 2p. Private collection, Paris 75017.
