Folios 9-10: ADM to AAL

 [9r] My dear Lady Lovelac

I am in the middle 
of arranging my books and can
only just get room to write a
short note.

 I received yours relative to the
inquiry about the study of
Mathcs but did not answer as
you would have left town and
I did not know your country

 I don't think you will want
the `Study of Mathcs.  The
corresponding subject in the
[9v] Algebra or Trigonometry will
be what you want.

The continuity question
you must consider well (because
you will not allow yourself to
skip) and perhaps your ultimate 
difficulties will not be
altogether the same as those
you commence with.  The
curve is laid down right
and I have appended
a remark to what
I return.

 Yours very truly


 69 G.S.

 [10r] I have now returned to town.
My wife is gone to Highgate
for a fortnight
