A series of letters written by Cardinal Manning (1808-1892) to T[homas] P[enyngton] Kirkman (1806-1895), a mathematician and philosopher, best known for the 'fifteen schoolgirls problem', arranging fifteen young ladies in groups of three on each of seven days so that each young lady walks with every other one just once. Manning's first letter details his thoughts on Kirkman's book 'Philosophy Without Assumptions'; a letter dated later in the month invites Kirkman to visit Manning at the Archbishop's House in Westminster, with later letters detailing Manning's thoughts on Kirkman and his work.
