COMMENTS
Comments:  The addressee is a friend and colleague, probably from the "Société des amis de l'Université de Lyon". He may be Ch. Courbet, if one refers to a letter from P. Curie to Georges Gouy written in Paris on January 31rst, 1905. Curie says there that a certain Ch. Courbet has written to him to ask him to give a lecture in Lyon, and that he has declined the invitation. This letter to Gouy is kept in the French National Library (BNF Manuscrits Fonds Curie, NAF 18515, p. 15). The present facsimile is a page taken from an autograph dealer catalogue.
