Jourdain, P. 'A proof that every aggregate can be well-ordered.'
Acta Math vol 43, No.1 Dec 1922, 239--261


What is the meaning of this comment?

"The undersigned does not accept the principal view on which is based the 
above paper of the regretted, highly esteemed mathematician Philip B. 
Jourdain, which paper seems to be the last one written by him. But it contains 
so many new points of view that I have thought I would do the mathematical 
Public a service by publishing it. At the same time, however, I wish to point 
out that this journal will not to any further extent be at the disposal for
papers of the same kind.
G. Mittag-Leffler."
