Notes, topics or text 

An excerpt from an undated letter from BR is found in Felix Frankfurter's book, Structure, Method and Meaning, quoted in the Preface by Horace M. Kallen on page vi.

On learning of the plan for a book to honour Sheffer, BR wrote in a letter, "I have for a large number of years been a great admirer of his work. In particular, his substitution of one undefined term in place of 'or' and 'not' has rendered possible a simplicity in the logic of propositions which had previously been unattainable. I mention this among many other propositions because it was particularly in my province."
