To all Germanists and other Gaussians,
I was recently asked by a correspondent about Sophie Germain and Gauss. She
wants to know:

1) Did Germain (then "Monsieur Le Blanc") write her letters to Gauss in
French or in German? Did he reply in German or French?
2) Why are there no portraits of Germain?

I thank you in advance to help my correspondent to satisfy her legitimate
curiosity.
