Does anybody have a translation of this letter? 69.60.237.4 (talk) 20:48, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

extraordinarily dull. article about a letter that neither prints the original text, nor a translation, nor summarises the contents. basically the history of a piece of paper, contents withheld. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.127.31.214 (talk) 19:57, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Better now? Walrasiad (talk) 07:36, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

In my opinion, this is an extraordinary well-conceived page (accessed 27 June 2013), and easily one of the best I've seen on wikipedia. Has the big advantage over pretty much all published works on the subject in that it doesn't have a particular theory to push, and therefore includes all of the main historiographical currents. Despite the highly technical (even arcane) subject, it reads well, and is organized in a manner that makes it accessible to novices to as well as experts. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.196.204.214 (talk) 15:39, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad you liked it. :) Walrasiad (talk) 07:56, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
