"In 1891, Marie Skłodowska Curie followed her older sister to study in Paris, where she earned her higher degrees and conducted her subsequent scientific work. She was the first woman the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris. She shared the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics with her husband Pierre Curie and physicist Henri Becquerel. She won the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Her achievements include the development of the theory of ""radioactivity"" (a term she coined), techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes, and the discovery of two elements, polonium and radium.

To comte Jouffroy d'Albans, Consule of France in Liverpool. „Je ne puis malheureusement vous donner de renseignements détaillés relativement à la production de Sélénium. Je n'ai pas eu connaissance d'une usine en produisant régulièrement. Ce corps est extrait des résidus de fabrication d'acide sulfurique (boues des chambres de plomb). Vous aurez peut-être des renseignements en vous adressant à une maison de produits chimiques, par ex à la maison Chenal Darichet à Paris, rue de la Sorbonne.

Cette maison en a produit il y a quelque temps une certaine quantité. Agréez, Monsieur, je vous prie, mes salutations sincères. […]“ Translation: „Unfortunately, I cannot give you detailed information regarding the production of Selenium. I have not heard of a factory producing regularly. This body is extracted from sulfuric acid manufacturing residues (sludge from chambers lead). You may get information by contacting a chemical house, for example at the Chenal Darichet house in Paris, rue de la Sorbonne. This house produced a certain amount of it some time ago […]“.

To her daughter's educator, in French: "I am glad to know that I can count on you for Eve's German lessons. I'm sure this child will work better now, because she promised me. I'm sorry you've had difficulties with her that could easily have been avoided if I had been warned. [...] I understand very well how difficult your situation is at times, and I also understand that you suffer from not being able to form an opinion about what you sometimes hear. What can do you some good is to know that you are doing a useful work by caring with affection and devotion for the children entrusted to your care. Mr Langevin certainly appreciates what he owes you in this respect. By helping him in his difficult life you have made it possible for him to organize his work regularly and to have a little peace and quiet at home" (transl.). - Small stain on the last page, otherwise in fine condition.
