Excerpt from Lectures on Cauchy's challenge in Linear Partial Differential Equations
In the yr 1883 a legacy of 80 thousand money used to be left to the President and Fellows of Yale university within the urban of latest Haven, to be held in belief, as a present from her young children, in reminiscence in their cherished and commemorated mom, Mrs. Hepsa Ely Silliman.
