# TM/09/09/ : Mathematical Notes and Notebooks

Thomas Manning was admitted to Cambridge University to study mathematics. He was very able and though did not graduate, he continued in teaching position at Cambridge for some time beforel he travelled to France to study Chinese. He was keen to develop new theorems. He published a mathematical text and corresponded with other mathematicians.
