Autograph Letter Signed

Paris: 1900.

A.L.S. 8vo., 2 pages, Paris, August 30, 1900, in German (translated), to a colleague whom he would like to meet at the Paris World Exhibition: "Since yesterday, I am here in Paris and already have to leave tomorrow. Therefore, I will have to content myself with looking at some novelties at the exposition, apart from the official visits I have to make. If it is possible for you to come to the exposition tomorrow as well, we could meet there. For that purpose, I will be taking my lunch in the little restaurant "Terasse" at 7 o'clock in the morning. This little restaurant is near the park on the left side of the Champ-de-Mars, as seen from the Eiffel Tower, and close to the Chateau d'Eau. It would please me very much to speak with you. I will stay at home until 10 o'clock in the morning." P.S. "I have sent a similar letter to Mr. Chappuis and Guillaume." Boldly signed and in fine condition. Note: Guillaume is most likely Edouard Guillaume (1861-1938) - a scientist and close friend of Arrhenius who became Director of the International Bureau of Weights and Measures.

Swedish physicist and scientist who was one of the founders of Physical Chemistry. He was the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1903.
