description

Some addresses, but of greater interest are the lists of some of CSP's scientific journals; "My writings on the Validity of Reasoning"; notes on construction work at Arisbe; "Octavo copies of my writings in the breakfast room"; meanings of the verb "give"; "To calculate the height of Aurora according to H. A. Newton." Some undated reflections: "I like and esteem the man who knows when to resign a game of chess, and does not insist upon protracting it to a tedious and melancholy mate. I like and esteem the man who gives Death a cordial shake of the hand when the time comes, and having fought a good fight, does not finish it with a feeble, frittering, factious, fretful, futility." And: "Intellectual value lies wholly in form, not matter."
