# Euler's major correspondents

If we restrict the long list of Euler's correspondence to those with whom he exchanged
fifteen or more letters, we find that there are thirty-three people remaining. These
thirty-three people accoutn for more than 60% of Euler's correspondence, and therefore
being familiar with them and their letters gives us a shorter route to understand most
of Euler's life of letters.
