Why has n't he his letters of credit or his circular notes?

Nothing but a sheaf of circulars and advertisements and catalogues for Miss Million, and one grey note for Miss Million's maid.

A kindred experiment is to place red circular wafers upon a white disc, and note the rings visible.

You, sir, must also fight your own little battle, and tell "Hersilie" she is not to "laugh outright" at any of your "Circular Notes.
"Ladies on Horseback" by Nannie Lambert
As it is often such a bore to draw money in those funny Italian towns, I enclose a few circular notes which may be useful.
"Pietro Ghisleri" by F. (Francis) Marion Crawford

In science:

B Note that the above function f (β ) is well-defined in spite of the ambiguity of sc,i , because of the circular property of the trace.
Low entropy output states for products of random unitary channels
Note that the factor of α in equation (5) enters linearly in both the radius, ri , and circular velocity, Vi .
Effects of baryon removal on the structure of dwarf spheroidal galaxies
Although we have no direct evidence for accretion onto VII Zw 466 itself, we note that the large circular loop seen at optical wavelengths in the north-west quadrant of the ring might be the result of bridge material falling back onto the disk.
The Head-on Collision between Two Gas-Rich Galaxies: Neutral Hydrogen Debris from the Centrally-smooth Ring Galaxy VIIZw466
Note that the case of the circular ensemble with τ = 0 is very specific.
Nonhermitean Random Matrix Models
Note from eq. (12) that the potential can be written as an integral over the circular deflection function φr from eq. (4), but φr must be evaluated at the appropriate ellipse coordinate ξ (u).
A Catalog of Mass Models for Gravitational Lensing
Note that for the interferometers, each element receives either right or left circular polarization at any instant.
Experimental CMB Status and Prospects: A Report from Snowmass 2001
Note that the core is seen most clearly at the longer IR wavelengths, and that it is clearly non-circular.
The Structure of Cold Molecular Cloud Cores
Finally it is worth noting that circular geodesics on the equatorial plane are stable.
Geodesics in a quasispherical spacetime: A case of gravitational repulsion
These future data releases will be announced via a GCN circular and, unless otherwise noted, follow the same data release model described in this document.
SDSS Pre-Burst Observations of Recent Gamma-Ray Burst Fields
In this context it is important to note that the observation of stable directions, with some variability in flares, for both linear and circular polarizations are unique observable features of the MECO model for Sgr A*.
Does Sgr A* Have an Intrinsic Magnetic Moment Instead of an Event Horizon?
We note that both circularly and transversely polarized initial laser beams are needed to measure all three polarization asymmetries, see Eqs. (8) and (9).
Probing Higgs-sector CP Violation at a Photon Collider
Furthermore, we note that, although the orbital shrinking as well as the synchronization of the angular rotation are evident on the time-scale of the present integration, it can be clearly seen that there is no evidence for the circularization of the inner orbit.
Tidal and rotational effects in the perturbations of hierarchical triple stellar systems. II. Eccentric systems - the case of AS Camelopardalis
Start by noting that, if u0 is covariant under rotations about the origin, then ω0 is circularly symmetric and, hence, so is ω ν (·, t); this is due to the rotational invariance of the heat equation.
Boundary layers and the vanishing viscosity limit for incompressible 2D flow
Note that the kernel may be of any shape that includes the pixel K00 , and so to preserve symmetry in all directions, we adopt a circular kernel (instead of the standard square shape).
A New Algorithm For Difference Image Analysis
Note that π ′ has a k -circular succession j ≥ m + 1 if and only if j + 1 ≥ m + 2 is a k -circular succession of π .
