Footnotes

  • A series of letters written by Cardinal Manning to the Rev. T.P. Kirkman between 1876 and 1880. Thomas Kirkman was a clergyman and mathematician best known for proposing "Kirkman's schoolgirl problem", a mathematical problem in combinatorics. Manning's first letter details his thoughts on Kirkman's book Philosophy without Assumptions; a letter dated later in the month invites Kirkman to visit Manning at the Archbishop's House in Westminster ("As you go to Paris, I assume through London, it would give me much pleasure to see you...This house is in no street, but at the first turn to the left, as you go towards Vauxhall Bridge close to Victoria Street...") Later letters detail Manning's thoughts on Kirkman and his work ("Why did the Pall Mall and the Spectator too say that you stand with Descartes' 'Cogito ergo sum' It is just what I understand you not to do.") Other letters contain further discussions of Kirkman's work and Manning's understanding of the nature of God.
